I need to grant two users access to a single folder. User A will only have permission to see the contents and to download. User B will have permissions to do everything – upload, delete, rename etc.
When either user clicks an FTP link in Internet Explorer, I need that link to take them directly to the folder in question, not the root.
So User A with only “get” permission clicks that link, and an IE window opens up showing just that folder, from which they can download files. User B with all permissions does the same thing, and sees the same thing, but will be able to upload and delete files also.
I hope that description is clear.
What is the best way to do this using .htaccess and .htpasswd? or is there a better way?
