    When trying to access a specific folder, my FTP user is getting permission denied. I've tried using chown to fix it, but it won't work. The FTP user is web4_phigam. However, the files/folders are owned by "derek" and in the group "web4." The phigam user is a user in /etc/passwd and it is administrator according to ISPCONFIG's web interface. When using "chown -R web_phigam web/" the option doesn't stick to the files. How can I get the directories to be owned by the correct user?

    did you set the FTP tick box for this user in ISPConfig ?

    there is no tick box for FTP, however, there is one for "administrator" and i did select that one. so it should have permissions to do all that it needs to do for accessing and so forth, but it doesnt/wont work. i'm using the perfect install from centos 4.4

    Did you enable the FTP checkbox in the website?

    oh, yes certainly... that's enabled. and i can login just fine, however, things become permission denied and inaccessible. when i login as root, the owner:group is a bit wacky. i was able to get the group to web4 like it should be, but i cant get the owner to any of the web4 clients.

    Please uncheck the "administrator" checkbox of the admin user, wait 2-3 minutes, check the administrator checkbox again. ISPConfig will set the permissions again then.

    After doing what you said, there was still no go. Once I removed the administrator from the user, Apache did reset the owner, however, after re-adding the user, the original scheme returned. It is as follows:

    i created a different user, set it to the administrator, and it works as that user and it now has the directory ownership. i dont get why the original user wouldnt work though...


    also, another account wont let me set the group ownership. when ftping, i can't delete, create, or anything with the user although i can login. here's that one's info:

    You use the group ID 10006 twice! I guess the problem was the same with the user dingle in /etc/passwd (that's why I wanted to see the whole file ;) ).
