What, specifically, did you put in the rc.local file?

 Please give the specific error. What were the permissions on the files and 
folders in question.  The files and directories just need to be readable by 
gnump3d, AFAIK.

Are you asking us to help you break the rules established by your employer? 
The default http port is 80, specifing a URL without a port reference will 
cause the browser to try to connect to port 80. Typically, that's the port 
that Apache listens to.

Problems 1 & 2 seem unrelated to me. Why do you think changing ownership of 
the music folder will fix problem 1?

FWIW, try 'man chown'
Something like 'chown -R', IIRC, will recursively change ownership.
