I'm trying to use a script I wrote to copy files from one directory to another (as part of my backup regime). Unfortunately, because they are in my webserver directory, some of the files don't belong to the user that I run the script as (via cron). I can run the script with sudo, so I know that it's a permission problem.
My initial thought is that I can use the set-uid bit and chown the script to root, but this still balks. Here is the relevant output of ls -l.
