Changed user on a domain, but previous user is still owner of the files


#1

Is there a way to get around this? I moved a site to a different user so that someone else could work on it without giving my ftp password, but the file permissions have stayed with the old user as owner and the wordpress uploader is no longer working. Is there something I can do to straighten this out?

Thanks!

When you changed the user did you also copy the files for the new user? It’s a second option. That would make a new set of files under the new user.

If you cannot CHOWN the files to the new user yourself, put in a ticket to DH and they can do it for you.
