    Bzzzt. Only if the permissions permitted it.

    Example 1:


    public_html is user/group bob/httpd

    the perms are 2770


    Example 2:

    All users on the system have a primary or secondary group "users"

    /home/bob user/group bob/users

    perms are 701

    This explictly denies "users", yet allows Apache in (since it is running
    as httpd).
