Dear All,

I have a rsync permissions problem that I can't figure out. 
I have a dev server and a WWW server. I use a simple rsync script to push the 
files from dev to www.

On the WWW server /var/www is permissioned 775 wwwrun.www .
The user who pushes the files is named "back". "back" is in the www  group.

When I call the script from dev I get all these permission denied errors and 
Im not sure why because its group WWW writable. 
The only way I can get this to work is by chmod 777 /var/www then reverting.

Any idea??
