Owner & Group setting for OpenCart install on CentOS 6.3

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm setting up a development server on a HP microserver with CentOS 6.3. I'm relatively new to Linux and have ran into some issues/confusion. I have the server fully setup/updated with yum. It's a headless server & I'm connecting via PuTTY. For the following installs of OpenCart, I'm logged in via SSH as a regular non-root user. I'm trying to do a clean install of OpenCart I tried setting OC up with Yum first and came up against permission/ownership issues, so I forgot about doing it that way. Then I just extracted the files locally on my windows machine and FTP'ed them into my r (HowTos)
