    I believe you have to be the owner (chown) in order to change the permissions. Otherwise, it should work fine - always has when I do it.

    ok, say the username is user. You would type:

    chown user:user file

    or chown user:user dir/

    or to do every file in a dir its chown -R user:user dir/

    you can also use * instead of a file/dir to do everything in that dir, or chown -R user:user * to do abosolutely ever file

    also, when you do chmod, make sure you do chmod 666 file, and not chmod file 666 or it wont work either :)
