Permission Denied cPanel or PHP file upload


Staff member
I am trying to upload a file through cpanel or wordpress admin panel, but cpanel shows permission denied and wordpress requires ftp access (probably for the same reason). What may be the cause of this?

The public_html directory contains files that were copied from public folder of another server via rsync to /home/somename and then I ran cp command to move these files to public_html. And now, all this is happening. Before cp, there was previous version of website that was working fine.

I'm using Centos 6.3 with Apache
