Linux User Management and Permissions

Postby waqaskhawaja » Sat Feb 20, 2010 4:00 am

I have configured apache and document root is /var/www/public_html. I want to have multiple ftp users access it.

I need suggestions on how should I manage the groups. Do you think it would be a good idea for www-data:www-data to own the document root and then adding all users to group www-data so they could upload files?

Please suggest.

you can use either acl or groupmod so that multiple user groups can write on same dir.
