Change Ownership Of Folders


Recommended Posts

I've installed joomla 1.5 via fantastico, all has gone fine at this point.


if i log into my account via ftp i see all the folders created by joomla and the owner of the files and folders is the name of that hosting account, which is correct.


however i then install an extension into joomla using the extension manager install. once it has installed the extension, i look at the folders from within my ftp software, and all these new folders installed for this extension dont have the same owner as all the other files, the owner is "99"


The problem is, i can't edit any of these files or folders, as i dont have permission to do so.


Can i change the ownership of thee files and folder so i can edit them? why have these items been installed not using my username as the owner..


please help!
