I'm trying to backup a website, however there are a few files that I cannot access. I tried using the cpanel file manager and ftp. I get permission denied, in ftp the attributes are 660 (owner and group can read/write). If I try changing this I get access denied. I tried logging in with the primary ftp account, and then created a new ftp, neither will let me access the files.
Generally via SSH. This is not possible via cPanel (from my experience) or any half way secure FTP installation. So if you don't have shell access you may need to get your webhost to chown the directory/files
