I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..
I can create / edit my ftp account, it's just oscommerce sets the owner of files to "48" rather than my ftp username, so I can't then change privaliges on these files as I am no longer the owner. if I over-right files using my ftp account, oscommerce doesn't like it as user "48" is no longer the owner..
I have never had this problem in any osC installs so I do not think it is a osC problem...
So, I assume that if anyone else ftps into their catalog/images dir, all the images that have been uploaded by adding new products in the admin control panel have are 'owned' by their ftp username?.
Can someone just check - the LIST command gives a list of all files in the directory, including their owner name and group. the files that I have ftp uploaded have owner and group "redshop" - but images uploaded through the control pannel have owner / group "48"..
I am using oscommerce 2.1 BTW...
Ouffff 2.1 is not supported anymore you should install.
How do you change the ownner of files with ftp? oscommerce has uploaded files with user "48" - how do you change this? chown doesnt seem to work. who is the owner of oscommerce files after a fresh install?..
This question should be to your iPage hosting provider.
You should be able to create your own FTP account.
