    Hey Everyone,

    On one of my sites a user has Joomla installed and when the upload a module through joomla it makes the owner of the files 99 99. Which is nothing i presume.

    How can I chmod all the files at once in cpanel?

    Any help would be great thanks!

    Dont know of a way to do it in cpanel

    Code:
    chown -R owner:owner folder/
    will work from shell though

    you can chmod from cPanel file manager, but no chown. Which is what you need to do here.


    (an example) chown -R user:user /home/user/public_html/joomla

    I'd be careful with Silver_2000's suggestion. If you did that after logging in (and not moving to the correct directory) you might make a real mess.

    In other news, once cPanel releases the updates for moving to Apache2 this shouldn't be a problem any longer for you. Or if you can't wait you could always move to PHPsuexec then all files written to server will be owned by the user as they should be.

    Which is why the folder/ is there - I wasnt going to try to guess what the right path was - at least in my example if it was followed blindly it wouldnt do anything since there is no folder called folder and there wasnt enough info for the totally uninformed to screw things up ...

    its also very similar to the man pages

    I edited the post to switch chmod to chown


    the point was that it cant be done from cpanel and ANYTHING done in shell could cause all kinds of problems if done incorrectly depending on your rights.
