Symptoms

On the Web Server 7, some of the directories of a Web Server instance would have permission and ownership changes.

For example, on the Oracle Web Server that is installed & started/stopped as root for the administration server and 'webservd' is the owner id of the running server instance, some of the directory will always have the files and directory ownership reverting to 'webservd'.
