  The home user directory is owned by user, but I quote don't understand 
  how I can provide hosting service for my users, if anybody user can 
  delete any files in his home directory. By example:
  if I want to block some resources, like site, by adding "deny from all" 
  to .htaccess and replace owner of this file to root:wheel. User can not 
  change this file (rewrite) but he can delete this file any time he wish 
  - and the site will go on to work and can make some steps to damage 
  Can you please explain me how can I get back to Unix where users can't 
  delete file which they not own. What steps I need to do to solve current 
  I need that users can't change or delete files, that users not own, 
  anyway it's (files) placed.
