Try the man page for chown or chmod. With chown you can change ownership of the file and with chmod you can set the permissions for the file.

the owner of the apache process?

Do you have shell access to the machine? If you don't - ask the
admin. If you do - 'ps -ef |egrep "(apache|httpd)"'.

And 'ls -ld /var/www/vhosts/servername/httpdocs'


Cheers,
Tink

Usually the owner of an Apache process is indicated within the httpd.conf file. I would probably bank that root owns it.. The www directory usually is owned by root, I would do an

ls -ld /var/www/vhosts/servername/httpdocs

This will show the permissions of the httpdocs..

Well, this tells you that gws owns httpdocs and psaserv is the group.. The drwx tells me that user has full permissions, and the r-x tells me that the group has read and execute permissions.. To change these perms do the following:

7 = rwx
6=rw
5=rx
4=r
0= nothing

# chmod 777 httpdocs - gives read,write,execute perms for owner,group and other

# chmod 700 httpdocs - gives read,write,execute for owner only
