So do you mean that you then copy whilst logged in a either admin or sudo? Because I still don't understand how the folders get the right permissions.
Every other site I have either setup and or administer via a commercial hosting solution uses the same account for both the MYSQL and the FTP account. Wouldn't this be easier, surely there is a way to do this? Why does the MYSQL require yet another unix account?
