I apologize if this have been posted before. A cursory search did not find it.
I will be hiring someone to create a website for me so I need to create a second user account for them to do so. I do NOT want them to access my account details, control panel, or the several other domains/subdomains on my account.
- Went to the DH control panel and created a new user
- Created unix groups for the new user
- Set all other folders to my group and only the one domain folder to our shared group
- Created a soft link from their unix directory to my unix directory containing the domain folder I want them to build
so far so good. From the shell I can access the folder from their account.
Problem: From the FTP I can see the link in their folder, but when I click on it says no such file or directory. Apparently the FTP cannot follow the soft link?
How do I fix this, or is there a better way to do this? This seems like way too much work just to add another editor for a domain.
