10.5: Apache 2 site troubles with permissions and folders

I did this on two Macs before stumbling on what is probably the correct/easiest solution. Unfortunately I don't have any more Macs to upgrade so I can't verify. :(

After copying the users/*.conf files, go to System Preferences > Accounts. At the bottom of the user list on the left side you will see "> Groups". Click the triangle to expand the group list, select the group that matches your shortname, and add yourself to the membership list. Logout and back in and I suspect the permissions problems will be resolved. This will probably fix the "(unknown)" in "Sharing & Permissions" in Finder "Get Info" also.
