comment Why do I get a 403 error when accessing my apache server?
Lets look at the bigger picture here - is he running static sites? He is running a php script, and that would indicate, no, he is running dynamic content through a PHP script. How do PHP scripts run? They need to be executed. What user executes files from PHP? I'm guessing www-data. The top voted answer to the question i referenced agree. You don't. citation needed xkcd.com/285 .

comment Why do I get a 403 error when accessing my apache server?
I covered that and better permissions settings in my answer - the executable bit is for scripts to run - which as i recall, are run by www-data. 755 is what many scripts recommend, and came to mind. "the exact permissions level would depend on your setup" is a VERY important point here.

comment Xchat IRC , two nicks
Nope, you can /msg nickserv identify each. I wonder if you could, alternately set up two profiles with different per profile info instead...

comment How to get XChat to automatically “ghost” the old “session” on provider-forced reconnect?
Which is what the answer says. Added a screenshot for clarity. The trick is really in getting multiple connect commands to ghost and change name at once.

set the second nick as your first alternate nick, naturally. First nick will fail, second nick will connect
