No way to change ownership from "nobody:users" on shared server?!
here's my first question, I'll be gentle if you will... +)
So I was trying to remove some files (a sandbox install of joomla 1.5) from a shared hosting environment running FreeBSD 7.3, and ownership perms were set to "nobody:users". So I couldn't touch them. Is there no way around this? I'm afraid I'll have to deal with this again soon, though on a different host (unknown distro).
Tech support changed the perms, and said the only way was for them to do it. I checked the joomla forums and there were a couple thoughts on this, one was with a script, the other was agreed with the above.
Obviously su/sudo doesn't work...
