to correct ownership of files type in console (SSH):
chown -R -v -f www-data:www-data/*
to set ownership of files and folders in images folder:
chown -R -v -f web1_ftp-web1:web1_ftp-web1/*
i don't know about this quote. who www-data:www-data any else? I think there is only a user:group is web1_ftp:web1 for each directory and file in /web
apache user is in group web1?
