    I have a VPS with WHM, I created an user with its own package in the folder "public_html" and I installed Joomla, and everything was ok, no problem at all, the user can assign permissions to the folders and modify them... the problem is when I install an extension from "Extension Manager" of Joomla, the folders I installed from that option I can't modify them from ftp or the console anymore, any solution?

    Hello,

    I can see you have root access of your VPS so login your VPS through SSH and correct the ownership of your joomal files and directory

    Code:
    cd ~USERNAME/public_html/
    chown  USERNAME:USERNAME * -R
    NOTE : Change USERNAME to correct cPanel user name of your account. If you are not sure about this then contact your server admin.

    Hello :)

    You may want to consider switching to a different PHP handler such as suPHP or using Mod_Ruid2 with DSO so that you do not have to manually modify permission/ownership values for files uploaded through the script.

    Thank you.
