You can use the chmod and chown commands to change ownerships and permissions of files/directories. Take a look at
man chown
man chmod

Falko thank you for your reply and sorry for the very late reaction but havn't had any time to react.

First of all I upload these files with FileZilla ftp client to the server. On the server I have Pure-ftp service up and running. I can upload files but the default permissions on the new uploaded files are not right.

I already tried it with chmod and than the existing files in the folder/subfolder get changed but when I upload a new file it gets the default permission that only the root user can read or change the files. (And the others have no rights)

And I want it changed that in my folder the others gets read rights so they can view my webpage by default when I change something.

Is it possible to change the default permission on one folder?
