chown -R web1:client1 /var/www/www.domain.tld/web/*

replace web1 with the web user that owns the website and client1 with the group that owns the website. You can find client and group on the options tab of the website settings.
Thanks man you are a life saver !!!!! it worked like a charme, I just had to change the comand like this:

chown -R web1:client1 /var/www/clients/client1/web1/*
