Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

I am installing Magento on a Fasthosts dedicated server and I have the following problem:

The installation process requires me to change the permissions of a folder (and its contents) in order to proceed with the installation. The folder in question is ../var/session

1. I tried changing the permissions in Filezilla but I was unable to do so
2. I tried changing the permissions in File Manager within Plesk but I was unable to do so as the folder is 'owned' by Apache
3. I enabled shell access to the domain/hosting set up in Plesk so I could login via SSH using Putty and attempted to CHOWN the folder in question but this would not work
4. I presume that the correct way to do it is via SSH while logged in as root...? The problem is I have no idea of the syntax for navigating using Putty to the domain directory of a particular domain when logged in as root. I would be really grateful if someone could help me with this!
