    I am new to this forum and CPanel administration as a whole. I read in one of these posts that I should change the group of the public_html folder to that of the user. I did that and I was denied access to the website. Then I changed it back and it was working again.

    I have a problem with permissions on my sever in that certain folders cannot be created by the php software and a lot of the times I am being told that the server needs write permissions on a certain folder. If the user is the owner of the public_html folder and the permissions are 755 then isn't there write permissions on the folder and the folders created beneath it? If the owner of the public_html folder creates a folder inside public_html then the new folder permissions are 755 so then the user can do anything so why am I being told the folder requires write permissions?

    This is really a battle as I cannot install wordpress, joomla, magento or any other software since I keep being told that certain folders do not have write permissions. How do I fix this please?

    Wow I could really use some help as permissions is causing my hosting to be kind of useless. Anybody?

    SuPHP is enabled by default on new cPanel servers. This is a good solution to your issue.

    But not with magento I don't think.

    If you feel you need some assistance, there are Professional System Administration services offered here:
