    Been diggin for a little bit figuring this would be easy to find but can't seem to. I want to reset the permissions on a user directory to what they should be by default. I need to do this because I copied a directory from another server which seems to have very incompatible permissions. I've been manually resetting things to what I think is right but I'm not exactly sure. I have to do this with about 100-150 more users so a automated method would definetly help me out a bit.

    Thanks!

    I have a similar issue after a server crash and need to get permissions reset for everyone.

    I believe there is a fix script in /scripts/ that can do this for you. I'm not online using my normal office machine at the moment so I am unable to look this up to provide specifics.

    Running these from SSH one by one should work;

    for CPAccess in `ls -A /var/cpanel/users`; do chown -R $CPAccess:$CPAccess /home/$CPAccess; done

    for CPAccess in `ls -A /var/cpanel/users`; do chown -R $CPAccess:mail /home/$CPAccess/etc /home/$CPAccess/mail; done

    for CPAccess in `ls -A /var/cpanel/users`; do chown -R $CPAccess:nobody /home/$CPAccess/public_html; done

    /scripts/chownpublichtmls

    Depending on how you're setup you might need these:

    find /home*/*/public_html -type d -perm 0777 -exec chmod 755 {} \;
    find /home*/*/public_html -type f -perm 0666 -exec chmod 644 {} \;

    To take care of one users account this may be all you need.

    chown -R usernamehere:usernamehere /home/user/public_html/* ;

    Don't run any of them if you're unsure what you're doing. Hire someone to help might be the best option.
