As suggested by mat@, WWWDIR should not be owned/writable by www:

And probably MAHARADATADIR should not writable by anyone as well.

Note that other www/ ports you maintain may have similar problem.

I committed this PR, and some other improvement.

As the other www/ ports may have similar problem, I shall check it one by one later. But in my memory, some does not work if we have the same permissions fix.

Thanks !
