And for changing the ownership of a file/directory, it should be necessary to use the CHOWN command, which is not available in ftp, but only per ssh.

Subject: Updating/upgrading on hosted webspace
I experience a peculiarity with file permissions on hosted webspace, only accessible through ftp.

After upgrading to the DokuWiki version 2006-11-06, restored files/directories in the /pages directory expect permission 646/757, otherwise pages/namespaces can't be changed/deleted.

The strange thing is that the 646/757 permissions seems to be only necessary for pages which have been transferred with ftp. Pages which I write afterwards get permissions 644/755, as expected due to (default) fmode/dmode setting, CAN be changed/deleted.

On this page S.Hennig wrote that proper rights are different between FTP-user and web-user. Probably referring to chgrp. Is it possible that this explenation applies to this situation as well?

As an FTP-user, I don't see the difference between 644/755 pages generated with DokuWiki and transferred through ftp.

Anybody knows the difference?
