Unix/Apache Permissions

I am encountering problems changing permissions for a new cart directory and sub-files. I get this error...

Could not change owner of "INSERT FILE NAME",
Server said: 'SITE CHOWN' not understood

I am trying to set to Octal = 777. Looking at individual file permissions via ftp I see that the owner = tgs and the group = psacln.

Should the 'group' and 'user' match? Should I be using a 'root' login?

Thanks

To change a files ownership you need to be logged in as root, using a sudo rule or using a script that has been set-uid wrapper.
