I appologise this is my first post, I will gladly have a further look around to see if this has been posted elsewhere, but so far it has not, or it doesnt quite explain in full what I need. If anyone here can help me out, I would really appreciate this. I want to make sure I do this right, as in the past I made a huge error and messed up my server.
I have two servers.
1, is our online dedicated server for mainly gaming, but I also use it as a hosting site for very basic webpages and a forum. This is on Centos 5.
2, My second server is a raspberry PI which I am using to test and learn from which is on Debian at home. Both servers are setup with just CLI access and Webmin.
I fully understand that these are two very different distro's but I am hoping what I need to do, can apply to both. All I want to be able to do is create a user, which has full read/write access ( and also be able to change a subfolder's acess ( to 777 for example ) to the var/www ( PI ) or var/www/html ( Centos ) folders using a client FTP application from a Windows PC, such as Filezilla.
As an example from my Raspberry PI, I wanted to try this from root:
chown -R piweb:piweb /var/www/
I assume, this on Centos would be :
chown -R webuser:webuser /var/www/html
But im not so sure if this is right, or if there is a better way to do it? Any help would be great, thanks for your time.
