Did you somehow do a "chown" rather than a "chmod", and reassign ownership to some bogus ID number (becoming "nobody")? Did this only happen to files you updated, or were other files' ownership changed? Were you using some script to do updates? There shouldn't be anything in osC that would change owner, so I'm guessing that it's a system hiccup. Does your hosting service control panel (e.g., cPanel or Plesk) file manager confirm the changed ownership? You're going to have to tell your host support what happened, and have them chown the files back to you. Provide them with a list in a file, or even a shell script that they could run (all set up and ready to go). That eases their workload (increasing the chances that they'll do it for free) and reduces the chances of their making an error. Normally, once you lose ownership of a file or directory, you can't use chown to get them back yourself -- the "superuser" has to do it.



chown myID.myGroup /path/filename1

chown myID.myGroup /path/filename2
