    Is there a way to reset all own/group for folders on a site directory, without delete and reinstall the site?

    read manual about chown, type:

    Code:
    man chown
    on your SSH console

    I'm aware of the chown and chgrp commands but I don't know what to set for each folder. some folders are mail group, root, user, etc... don't know what is set by default when a user account is created.

    Well, you may have answered your own question. Create a fictitious account and reference the permissions.

    Mail Directories / Folders User and Group Settings

    I have a similar problem with RedHat server on WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.9.0 S9966.

    Lately some users have reported issues with mail. When I checked the mail directories there were inconsistencies with the groups. For example old mailbox directories (located in /home/user1/mail/domain/) are set to user1:mail but if I create a new mailbox account in the user cPanel then the new mailbox directory user:group setting is set to user1:user1 which I suspect is not right.

    What should the user:group settings in fact be for the mailbox directories (and sub directories)?

    Any ideas or suggestions why my settings might have changed would be welcome.
