    Hi all,

    I successfully setup a LEMP server and I thought I had everything figured out until I tried to upload files using FTP. When logged in under FTP using CoreFTP I get the error message 553 Can't open that file: Permission denied when trying to upload or overwrite files. I tried chmod, no success.
    Also, when I try to upload a theme to WP I have IspConfig ERROR 500 - INTERNAL SERVER ERROR!
    On ls -la /var/www/clients/client1/web1//web I have:
    drwxrwxr-x 7 root root 4096 Feb 18 15:55 .
    drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 4096 Feb 17 18:35 ..

    Those files/directories should not be owned by root, look up the correct user/group in /etc/passwd and change then.

    Thanks for the reply. I already manage to correct that.
    To fix it, run:

    chattr -i /var/www/clients/client0/web7
    chown -R web7:client0 /var/www/clients/client0/web7/web
    chattr +i /var/www/clients/client0/web7
