New FTP User

I want to create a second user that have access to the root directory so that he/she can edit the website.

But when I created this user, it appears that the new user only has a partition of the webspace and could not access the website files.

How to create another user with full access?

You really can’t just make an additional user to “share” your directory, in a simple sense, though there are workarounds that you could employ, as in using unix groups (also here, here, and here).


A work around that should work, is create a new ftp account that both of you share the username and password, move your data to the new account and assign your domain name the new user account. This way the other person does not have full access but yet can access your web site.
