I copied a dir from one user to another logged in as root in SSH.
Now I get a "Permission denied" message when I ftp in that new dir.
How do I set new permissions for that dir? what are the command lines?

Anyone?

Log back in as root, and enter

chown -R someuser.somegroup /yourfolder

That will set the ownership for yourfolder and all files in it to the user you choose.

does /yourfolder have to be the full path from root?
what is "somegroup"? eg.administrator?

> full path from root

That will work, or you can use a relative path from wherever you are.

> somegroup

That's just an example group ;)

You should set the group to be the same as for the other files owned by that user - what exactly this is will depend on how your server is set up.
