recursive directory apache file ownership reset in filemanager. Directories owned by apache will now have anoter link beside the "Reset Ownership". It will now show: Reset Ownership | Recursively so you can either click the first link to just reset the directory, or click the Recursively link to do the directory, as well as all of it's contents. Only apache owned files/directories within it will be reset. Apache owned files in a directory within the intial path won't be touched if the middle level directory isn't owned by apache. It stops going down if any level isn't owned by apache. It will continue for other files/folders in that original directory though.
