Hi guys, love the EasyEngine. I have an issue though:
I’m working with a couple contact designers to develop websites for various clients, and I’ve pitched them the idea of using EasyEngine to increase their performance. Before, my clients were on shared hosts that pretty much took care of this sort of thing already.
I have root access, as a root user with SSH as well as with sFTP on a non-root user with root permissions (part of the group as well as visudo). I need to make sFTP accounts for the designers, and for the client… but I want to make sure they ONLY HAVE ACCESS TO var/www/, rather than the entire server. It’s not about editing the files… I don’t want them to even see them.
This will increase security, and simplify things for them. My problem is… nothing I’m trying is working. Sure, I can chmod things, play with who’s in what group, and all that stuff… but no matter what I do, other users can still see and open any file on the server outside of /root/.
I also want to put a shortcut to www into their user home folder.
How do I do these two things? I’m fairly new to this stuff… which is precisely why I’m using EasyEngine in the first place… so if you could also include a list of commands to enter in your explanations rather than just saying “do that” and “do this” like I typically see here and everywhere else I look, that would be great.
