I did a fresh install of 3.3.12 on RHEL 6 and found that when httpd is owned
by a different user I could not access the eprints interface at all. On
changing the ownership(user and group) of httpd to eprints it worked!

The default ownership and group is eprints.eprints. If the default is being
used then the ownership and group of the Apache should also be
On the other hand, if you had used the --with-user option while configuring
the eprints software then the ownership and group of the Apache should be
same as the one that you had used while configuring eprints software.
Hope this helps.
