Newbie here trying to set this up on my local dev server. For the life of me I can't get permissions right on the apache2 files. I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 wit vagrant as the webserver user. I've tried adding the user to adm group and other things. Can someone detail how to make the log files readable?

    webserver user must read (R) these paths AND cross (X) these directories too :

    • /
    • /var
    • /var/log
    • /var/log/apache2 for exemple
    • /var/log/apache2/error_log for exemple
