Hi there. Thanks for the reply.
Persistent permissions issues are on other boxes, on OSX as well. But I had some Passenger issues so I’ve moved into another issue.
But sudo nginx -t gets rid of the error on nginx.pid
That whole user/group issue on the user directive in nginx.conf is confusing as it ignores any attempt at using user root;.
So it has no user. The install has user nobody; but that isn’t used, so the user is www.
