Default Server Admin Account (not root) can't access parts of client site due to group restri

I'm trying to access a client's site through my own userid (a key authenticated linux account that's been added to the groups used by ISPConfig), not the root account.

However I can't access some parts of their site because the folders don't have group write (or execute) attribute set.

Is it acceptable to chmod 770 /.../clients/client0/web0/web folder?

Before attempting the above, I was trying to enable root FTP login using SSH. It's working for my other accounts, but not for root. I"ve created a folder in /root called .ssh, and applied chmod 700. Then I put authorized_keys in it and applied chmod 600. Rootlogin = without-password, and PasswordAuthentication is OFF.

I'll get there, just wondering how others achieve this.

My VPS system:
(Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Kernel 3.15.4-x86_64, Apache 2.4.7, MySQL 5.5.38, PHP 5.5.9, ISPConfig, Webmin, PureFTP & Quota, phpMyAdmin, postfix, dovecot, amavis, clamav, spamassassin, awstats, fail2ban, Jailkit, bind9, vlogger, webalizer)
