Folder Permissions for Two Users
I have a server running SLES 10.1 and using pure-ftpd. I need users to have access to specific folders. When the user connects via FTP to the server, they are placed in their specific folder. Below is the folder layout:
All user directories are located under one folder (Main)
Now, the issue I am having is that I need one user (lets call him Steve) to have access to all folders located in Main.
So when "Steve" connects to the server he is in the main directory. (Where the "Andrew" and "Thomas" directories are located. "Steve" needs full access [rwx] to everything under "Andrew" and "Thomas'" folders. While at the same time "Andrew" and "Thomas" connect into their respected directories and need full access to theirs only.
It seems that the way I have this setup "Steve" can only get into files he creates, or if the rights are changed "Thomas" and "Andrew" cannot.
I was never any good at setting rights. I would just use the root account, except that I am not going to be the one updating this server, therefore I need another account that is not quite root.
I have tried: chown Andrew:Andrew to the Andrew folder and then added Steve to the Andrew group, however this did not work.
Any suggestions? Much thanks!
