    Hello,

    Just discovered the hard way you can't change the ownership of files and directories on Apache/Linux server. Using Joomla and some of my component module directories cant have chmod changed.
    Can someone provide me with a hack to chmod my directories and files since you cannot achieve this on Apache?
    or tell me how to turn off whatever on the Apache server keeps changing the permissions on my server.

    Thanks

    on a whim, i activated the Joomla internal ftp. Uninstalled my extensions, and then reinstalled. I can now chmod to my liking.
    Hopefully this will stick. Joomla ftp is very hard to setup, but below are my details;
    (running Linux on Apache using Fedora Red Hat 7)

    host: ftp.yoursite.com
    port: 21 (default)
    ftp username: your_username
    ftp password: your_password
    root: public_html/ (or www/, whatever is your preference)

    hope this helps someone. this info is very hard to find. i'm going to post it in the Joomla forum too. I'm sure it will get a lot of love there.
