Im trying to serve similar content over two websites, but don't want to have 2 of each file, especially when they are growing.
The basics, im running CentOS, with cPanel.
Is it safe to do the following, I have folder downloads1 in
i have user2,
can i make a group -
add both users to the group:
useradd -g sharedfiles user1 useradd -g sharedfiles user2
chown -r -v user1:sharedfiles downloads1/
User 2 i want to have
but i want it to be a symlink like
ln "downloads1" "/home/user1/www/downloads1/" lrwxrwxrwx 1 user2 sharedfiles 11 May 9 14:20 downloads1 -> /home/user1/www/downloads1/
Is this a safe practice? Or is there a better way to do this if I want them both to be able to share the files for distribution over apache. Is there any drawbacks to this? Thanks in advance for any light shed on this. I'm not 100% sure weather this should have gone here or on serverfault.
