Im new to the list, hope I have the right one, but if not, please let
me know. And forgive me if I don't speak clear unix.
I am trying to set up a webserver, with virtual hosting accounts.
Naturally, I want to be able to give users the ability to upload files
to their web directories.
Setting up basic ftp is not an issue for me. I can set up a user at /
usr/home/<user>, and can upload via ftp just fine. Of course that
directory is owned by user:user. I also get ftpchroot just fine.
Next I go to vipw to change the user's home dir to something in the
www area, which is owned by www:www. This is where my problems start
with being denied. I am assuming that uploading to the unprivileged
user www is getting in my way.
I have tried to play with groups, ownership and permissions, etc, but
I am not getting very far. I thought I'd see a boatload of information
on Google about this. Any help is much appreciated, something that
will give a user enough rights to upload his site, while at the same
time keeping the webserver running as unprivileged as possible.
I am new to freebsd. I was using wu on solaris prior to this... will
the freebsd ftpd do what I want?
