The archives/private/ directory must be either 'drwxrws--x' or owned by
the web server user. See the warning box at

You may have received this from check_perms

Warning: Private archive directory is other-executable (o+x).
 This could allow other users on your system to read private archives.
 If you're on a shared multiuser system, you should consult the
 installation manual on how to fix this.

And just set o-x without consulting the installation manual.
