John, while I do have a macOS "Numbers" file -- Numbers is the macOS equivalent of an Excel spreadsheet -- where I  store phrases changes, when it comes to solutions like this one which often involve more than one step, I have a folder called "phpFox How To's" where I store BBEdit text files. Each text file contains step-by-step instructions for how to perform a particular task, or achieve a particular objective. The name of each of these text files begins with "How to" and is followed by a brief description of what the instructions contained therein will do. It is a simple, straightforward, easy system which helps me to remember how to do certain things.

Thanks, also some good pointers there. I love comments and love colors. If someone looked at books I read before the internet was commonplace they would swear I was the one who developed color coding of code that is now widely used. My wife has laughed at me for decades on my incessant use of highlighters when I read/study. She thinks it's funny how virtually every line is highlighted. She sees using highlighters (the way most people do) as a method to highlight importance whereas I see using coloration and highlighting as a method of organizing thought.

I did follow the upgrade guide on permissions. It may be that initial clone however had permission issues not directly related to the upgrade permissions. 

I initially tried the zip/unzip method similar to what you described but still had issues. I do not understand why but sometimes direct file transfers work better. I have been told that intelligent FTP programs can sometimes better understand when a file needs to be transferred in binary mode, which can have an impact on permissions. My site's are rather large and have tons of user generated content so this of course does have the drawback of elongated file transfer times, which I am in the middle of now. If it however corrects the perceived permission problem then the time lost (while doing other tasks in the meantime) will be more than made up for on the savings used to troubleshoot.

this would be nice Part 1. - To view site as {UserGroup} 

also part 2: would be nice to have it show users in that group when your logged into a usergroup admincp area (just create a Block Members List last login and IP address they logged in with) 

just like now shows who logged in last as admin and what IP address they used)

for example (user-group staff) you can see a list of all staff members when logged into this usergroup and as an admin you can modify what you need to this usergroup.

@NetworkCycles

should post this in Github feature requests

 

nice Idea
