I think I found the problem. I migrated one of my existing instances to the
test server I set up on Friday, and did not experience the right problems I was
seeing on my problematic server.
Thinking back about something you mentioned regarding it possibly being a cache
problem, I returned to my problematic server and simply deleted the entire
cache folder for one of my instances. Created a replacement folder for it,
assigned ownership of it to "www-data", then ran a "maint cleancache" command
on the instance. After doing this, I then had to again reassign ownership
rights for the entire cache folder to "www-data". I think this may be an issue
unique to how TurnKey Linux works...the subfolders within the cache folder that
were recreated had "root" ownership for some reason, and the server doesn't
seem to like that.
However, once rights were reassigned, now the ACLs work properly. Go figure.
The location of the cache folder on this server is different than my old
server, and I suspect I copied the cache files to the new location when I first
migrated the instances. Looks like that isn't a good thing to do.
I'm going to try this fix for all of my wiki instances tomorrow, so fingers
crossed it works for all of those as well.
Thanks again for the help! I doubt I wouldn't have found this if you hadn't
put the bug about the cache in my ear.
