I have a server which is shared and I don't have too much control on it. I was able to install Joomla 2.5, but whenever I upload any file, such as a template, the file owner (www) is different than my username, so that I cannot later ssh into the server and edit the uploaded files, which I need to do to change the logo, etc. I believe this is because the upload is through php.
I tried setting Joomla use ftp, but unfortunately ftp port is disabled and only sftp is available. Is it possible that I set Joomla somehow to use sftp for file upload and not ftp or php?
I am using Joomla 2.5 on a linux server.
Edit: We finally solved this using ACL. The webserver and my username were placed in the same group and we were both given write access to the folder.
