I am on the curent Linux CentOS set up with VM Pro. I used Install Scripts to add Joomla 1.5 and that went fine (after adding PHP and a few other VM requests). Everything is going smooth until I try to change a template I just added through the Joomla admin installer. I can't change any of the directories.
When I get info about them I discover all the VM Joomla files are owned by the designated server, but whatever I install through the Joomla Admin defaults to apache as the owner. Because Joomla installs of various components requires lots of housekeeping as orchestrated via the installed package's xml file, I can't perform a simple upload through VM's file manager.
I cannot change the Joomla Adnin ftp which is turned off. When I try with correct password and user (super admin) I am rejected with permission denied.
So I went through the VM admin through the file manager and found the installed template and got info, I change the owner to my server's owner (which appears on the other not-installed-through-Joomla files) but it won't complete the command because: permission denied.
So I am stumped as what to do next to regain these permissions for Joomla admin.
Thanks in advance for all excellent chin scratching/forehead slapping solutions.
