Exclamation GID / UID change after FTP upload

I have CENTOS server with suPHP installed. The user (UID) and group (GID) are different for PHP files. But when I upload any file using FTP, it makes user:user and suphp fails to parse it. I then change the ownership (using ssh) as user:group for the php file and it works. I want to know where is the problem here? and how to solve it?

Depends on how your settings are. You can solve it in an easy way by setting the group ownership on the directory and setting the sticky bit on the group level. That way every file that gets created in that directory gets the correct group settings. Look at man pages for:
man chown
man chmod
Kind regards,
