After setting up a new shell account, i noticed that from home i can cd …/myaccount and have full read access to everything, including sql passwords saved in php files, “proprietary” php code, and so forth.
Is everything I have unrestricted read access to anyone on dreamhost with any shell account, or did this one inherit privilages since it’s on the same dreamhost account? I dont know how to chmod.
At any rate, the real issue: I want to give someone full access to 2 of my folders (which are 2 .org domains this person will be helping me with). Can I move all the hosting for these sites to his account, or give him write access to the folders in my account? If possible, can I set it up so they can only access these 2 folders, and not cd …/me and see everything?
What do you mean by “RL”? Hang on, lemme check wikipedia…
