Kirk,

Pitfalls of being a 'newbie'... I used the right command but didn't specify
the file or directory to change. Your suggestion worked!

Thanks :)

I believe your chown syntax is incorrect.

Mine says:

usage: chown [-R [-H | -L | -P]] [-fh] [owner][:group] file ..

So, perhaps chown -R webuser:webgroup DirectoryName
