I've got a vsftp server running. Here's what I want to do :
2 developpers are given the access through an ftp client to a web directory. They write the files they want. Then they refresh the pages (F5) and the web server gives them the new pages.
Here's what I did :
- Create a group (name it
user1which belongs to this group and
user2which also belongs to this group
- create a directory
chgrp allaccessgroup /var/www/newsite
chown apache /var/www/newsite
chmod 570 /var/www/newsite
This way : apache can read, and only read the php files and all user1 and user2 are given the rights to do what they want.
The problem is that I want user1 and user2 to upload their files. When they are uploaded the files permissions are allaccessgroup / user1 or allaccessgroup / user2, and I want the permissions allaccessgroup / apache.
I'm looking for a way to change the ownnership automatically as soon as the files are uploaded. I've read some stuff like this : create a php file then call once the upload is done :
$complete = $complete.exec("ssh root@host -i /path/to/pulic/key chmod 0700 /Users/".$shortname."/Private/\n");
I don't like calling "exec" this would mean grant the "exec" access to php... Any other idea welcome !
By the way :
I've been looking to the vsftp config file :
but this is for for uploaded anonymous files to be owned by a different user, not for a specific user
Any other idea welcome !
