Currently there are folders and files on my server that show as User apache & Group apache

I have tried to overwrite and delete these file but unfortunately I received an error stating I do not have the necessary permission. I have tried to CHMOD and also change User and Group within SSH but am not able to.

This is normal when files are running under mod_php.

You need to login to ssh as the "root" user to be able to "chOWN" them to your own user.

This problem will always occur using mod_php unless you use something like mod_ruid2 in your apache configuration to stop this happening.
