Default web folders owned by root, .. and root has no access to them?

I recently updated my OS, fedora 18, and my ISPConfig. I noticed now a strange permission problem.

[root@r2 client_2]# ls -l
drwxr-xr-x   9 root   root    4096 May  6 14:46 web_535
drwxr-xr-x   9 root   root    4096 May  6 14:52 web_536
[root@r2 client_2]# cd web_536

[root@r2 web_536]# echo "hello" > test.txt
bash: test.txt: Permission denied
Web fodlers used to be owned by clients before. Are they now owned by root on purpose?

How can it be that root can not create files and folders?

Yes. The folders have to be owned by root.

The folders are protected with the immutable attribute. If you want to upload files as root, then remove the attribute with chattr command first. But dont forget to enable immuntable bit again when you are finished.
