Someone suggested entering this chown command:
sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/
This was a bad suggestion, as this breaks all exising sites on the server.

Is it as easy as reversing the chown command ( if so what would the syntax be ?)
Thats not that easy as the different subfolders in /var/www have different owners. How many websites do you host on that server?
