Thanks for the response. I will do my best to answer your questions.
I can perform the chmod to the directory and do not get an error, but can still pull a directory list by navigating to that directory via a web browser. Litespeed seems to completely ignore the chmod, as if I never performed it, at least as far as chmod 750 is concerned.
My home folder permissions are set to myusername/myusername. I cannot seem to find the lsws directory in my jailed shell to check the permissions. It is not in /usr/local.
Is there anything else I can check on my end? Should I direct my host to this thread to read your response?
Any additional help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
