    I can't seem to change my banner on my Joomla template. When i use the access of the Files Manager all i get is that i don't have permission to use this. :confused:

    Is there anyway i can grant myself permissions in cPanel. I've tried changing the permissions in the files manager but that doesn't work.

    You really should be contacting your hosting provider about this.

    According to my knowledge, Joomla seems to get such a problem for it if you are using mod_php (PHP as an Apache module).

    I have found 2 solutions for this problem, maybe there can be some more but I don't know.

    1. Try using phpSuExec (or mod_suphp)
    2. Use a script that restores/modifies file ownership and set it as a cronjob.

    Note: I was getting this error when I try to upload files inside Joomla. It is not possible to modify these files because they are owned by nobody (if you use mod_php)

    Hope that helps.

    After you decide on the template you will be using for your site have your host run the following command from shell as root

    chown -R YourUserName:99 /path/to/your/Joomla/template/directory

    Afterwards you should be able to manually edit your template files as needed and still use the html/css editors within the Joomla AdminCP/Template section.

    You may also want to do the same to the module, mambot and component directories after you have everything installed for your site.


    Note: This may need done again after installing any future templates or modules/components/mambots that you will need to edit manually.
