I did not see a similar question when I searched so here goes.
I am new to Dreamhost, an have for the most part have been happy with the service. I have run into a bit of a problem that I am trying to resolve. I am developing a website for a church (I am a member with web experience not a paid developer.) There are a group of us that are going to be responsible for maintaining the site. I (being a paranoid network administrator by day) do not like shared passwords (and do like audit control of files) so I had the brilliant idea of changing ownership of all of the flles within the site to a group eg. Web_Admin. I could then assign FTP or shell users to this group to allow them access to all of the files within the site.
Will this work?
Will this screw something else up?
Any particular instruction on doing this in this environment so as not to blow up the site, or will standard Debian Linux commands work?
