Owner and group in /var/www/html files and directories
Currently, one of the directories in the /var/www/html and index.php have the root as owner and group. And one of the directories has shin as owner and group.
The shin is in the sudo group.
The websites are working fine but I’d like to know if I should change all files and directories in the /var/www/html to owner:group to www-data.
I use a Git hook post-receive to deploy repo to the /var/www/html directory from the /home/shin directory.
