Ftp access: Does she need write access or just read?

Subdomains: From “Manage Domains” in the control panel just “Add new Domain / Sub-Domain”.

You can:

  1. Create a directory in her home directory.
  2. Create a symbolic link to this directory from your website.

This will allow her full control over this directory and files will be visible on your website. You won’t be able to modify these files unless you log into her account.

Try it out and let me know how this works out!

You do this with the “ln -s” command/option.

Let’s say you created your girlfriend’s account with userid hodsonsgirlfriend and created a subdirectory named “shared_ftp_for_hodsonsgirlfriend” in her home directory.

Log into your account using ssh and change to the area where you would like the folder to show up - say ./home/hodson/hodsondesign.com/uploads".

Type the following. Don’t forget the “.” at the end:

ln -s /home/hodsonsgirlfriend/shared_ftp_for_hodsonsgirlfriend .This creates a symbolic link to your girlfriend’s directory. The webserver should be able to read this directory. You will not be able to write to this directory. It’s like creating a “shortcut” to a folder in windows.
