what should be the permission for the Wordpress folder?

Hi guys I am running into a bit of trouble with linux permission what is the appropriate user and permission for the wordpress folder in OLS? the /usr/local/lsws/wordpress/ and all the wordpress file underneath it? I am guessing root is not correct.
I get some user report as you.
I am thinking give you a perfect solution, to try to avoid such permission issue.
Can you give me more info?
How you did the installation? How did you setup FTP? Are they run as different user?
