Ok, so my friend has a dedicated server with CentOS and Plesk. He is letting me host my site off it and gave me a Plesk login along with his root shell login. So I tar.gz all my stuff on my previous host and ftp it over. First thing I notice is I get permission denied in the root folder and in httpdocs. I shell in and chmod httpdocs to 755. That works and I ftp the tar file over, untar everythings fine but now when I go back to the ftp to try and edit files I get permission denied. Most of the folders are set to 755. This chmod stuff confuses me. I tried one of those chmod calulators with the owner, group, other check boxes and it generates the # for you although it doesn't seem to be helping.
