I noticed I could not delete a bunch of old WPTEST sites. And I could not change the permissions of .htaccess.
I eventually found I had to use ssh and log onto the root and use chown commands to change things from APACHE owned to ME owned. I changed the old test sites and deleted them, and I changed the .htacces.
I notice that all the WP- directories and files that are my working website are all owned by APACHE. WP-CONTENT, index.php, etc…
Should I change WP stuff from APACHE TO ME? I have a unmanaged dedicated server at godaddy and they refuse to answer any of these questions. Unless I cough up $40 a month for managed care. 🙂
