I am attempting to modify permissions on several folders in a subdomain however I am having trouble editing them.
Here is what I am doing where "sub" and "domain" are changed to my own values:
[soy]$ chown 767 sub.domain.com/search_texts/
I get the following:
chown: changing ownership of `sub.domain.com/search_texts': Operation not permitted
Am I not allowed to change the permissions to be writeable by all?
A little background as to why I need to do this. I am attempting to install a CMS - http://jetboxone.sourceforge.net/ - because I would like to be able to offer my clients an open source CMS that will meet their needs. I've not done this on dreamhost before, so I'm not sure what their policies are.
Whats the deal?
