    I was CHOWNing a folder within a user's directory from root to user and accidently, run:

    chown -R user:user /

    And I think I have given the user root access by not specifying access to a directory within their account.

    The user is actually one of my sites so this is not so bad. However ,now I cannot log on to WHM nor can I get SSH access and the server kicks me out even when I attempt to make connection with the hostname...

    Please help !!!!! lol
