I’ve read through the posting between rlparker (who is an incredible wealth of information) and six … and have almost the same problem.
I have a domain with a folder called newstuff. I would like to give two users access to the newstuff folder, so that rather than emailing me new information to put on their site, they can just upload it to this folder, where I will access it and add it to their site as necessary. This sub-directory will not be used for direct web access … I will need to manipulate these files before they are added. This is just a replacement for emailing large files. In reading through the KBase and WIKI, here is what I’ve done :
1./ Created the newstuff folder in the root of my domain
2./ Created a new user for these two people (user2)
3./ Created a newstuff folder in the home directory of user2(/home/user2/newstuff)
4./ Re-mapped the sub-directory per the instructions in the Account Panel. The http://www.mydomain.com/newstuff folder now maps to /home/user2/newstuff.
I thought this would work, but I must be missing something. When I go through FTP to the newstuff directory on my domain, I don’t see any files that are put in the user2 newstuff directory. Also, the only way I seem to be able to access the user2 newstuff directory is through DH’s webFTP. I can’t figure out how to set it up in Dreamweaver to connect to that directory.
Can anyone help?
