Welcome to LQ!
You can change permissions of files when you own them or when you are logged in as root. As root you should be able to change everything according to your needs.

For recursive changing use the switch -R

chown -R user:group /path/to/directory
For more details one these commands, refer to their respective man pages:

man chmod
man chown
