Grant permission for new folder problems...

Posted February 4, 2014 1.9k views
Hello i am trying to grant new permissions for a new folder i made. I input this: chown -R root:root /var/ and i get: chown: cannot access `/var/': No such file or directory BUT the directory there as i can log in via SFTP and click through the path all the way to /public_html. Why is it saying this?
