This would change the ownership of that directory only. If you also want to change the ownership of the files and directories that are in that directory, you'd run

chown -R ftpuser:ftpgroup /path/to/directory
I really love this howto guide!
One question about ownership.. What do i need to change in order to permanently change the ownership? Ive tryed to just change
"('exampleuser', '1', MD5('secret'), '2001', '2001', '/home/',"

"('exampleuser', '1', MD5('secret'), '33', '33', '/home/',"

But it didn't work. I mainly use this guide to run a webserver, and i often get ownership problems when installing CMS's like Joomla and such. I use Debian and want the ownership set to Apache.
