How to set file ownership to inherit its parent folder?

Hi, I have a VPS running CentOS and has multiple users in it. Everytime I add/upload a file, the ownership is nobody:nobody.

How can I set the ownership to inherit the parent folders ownership as the default settings so that every user that will upload a file will own his files and not nobody:nobody?

Hope someone can help me.

How are you uploading your files, and through what service? (FTP, SSH, , service version, etc.) From what operating system are you uploading them from?

I uploaded files in Joomla Admin when installing an extension. I have not tried yet uploading using ftp. My PC is running Windows 7.
The extension was installed successfully but I cannot change the permission. When I checked using SSH, that folder has ownership nobody:nobody, so I need to manually change the ownership to my username manually.

So, how can I set my username as the default owner (user and group) of the files that I uploaded in Joomla?

Hi, I tried uploading a folder using FTP (filezilla) and the owner shows under my username so FTP works fine.
I think this has something to do with Joomla settings but I am not sure.
