    PHP : letting Apache modify FTP uploaded files

    Hi,

    I've been Googling my butt off and still found no satisfactory answer to this, so maybe there's someone here who can help.

    I'm on a shared hosting environment and this can't change as it's a client's site.

    If I upload a file via FTP then Apache/PHP has no rights to rename, unlink etc. I need to find the right command to make Apache/PHP the owner so I can rename etc and then set ownership back to FTP (otherwise it can't be deleted via an FTP client later on).

    Any suggestions as I can't use chown on the shared hosting.

    Cheers,
    Niggles
