Hello,

I was trying to create an FTP user on my server with access to all account. But accidentally changed ownership permission for all accounts to dane:dane user. Now all the site are down. Please would you help me asap. Is there any option revert this changes. My server is running with cPanel.

Hello Dane,

You can fix the ownership permissions for all the cPanel accounts using this bash script. Please try it.

Create a file with name fileperm.sh

Paste this script

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
cd /var/cpanel/users
for user in *
do
chown -Rv $user.$user /home/$user
chown -Rv $user.mail /home/$user/etc
chown -v $user.nobody /home/$user/public_html
done
Save and run

#sh fileperm.sh
