[solved] What creates the directories in /run? /run/http disappears

For some reason in the recent past (can't pinpoint it as I run updates more often than I access the httpd service in question) my httpd has been failing to start on a server.

The error message logged in /var/log/httpd/error_log just says

[Thu Dec 27 10:19:59.333708 2018] [core:error] [pid 901] AH00100: httpd: could not log pid to file /run/httpd/

Creating /run/httpd and restarting httpd fixes this, but that doesn't survive reboots obviously since it's a tmpfs.

My main laptop has the httpd directory without needing it manually created, so I'm not sure what the difference is. Both are fully updated. What creates the contents of /run anyway?

EDIT: On further investigation, this old bug seems related, but its fixed. Also, systemd-tmpfiles-setup.service seems to be what would need to create these folders

EDIT2: Randomly, this forum post mentions that permissions on / may be the problem. Sure enough my / was owned by user. No idea how/when this happened.... changing the perms fixes this
