I have a apache www folder, on Ubuntu machine. My current user 'joe' is the administrator. I added couple new users, but they can access www folder, how can I set permission to the folder, so a specific user can't access the folder (or he can read contents, but cannot open or modify any files)? Thanks!

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
But be aware: the apache must run as joe to have still access to this directories and files.
Or you have to create a special group, give the directory via chown to this new group, change the chmod's to 660 and 770 and put the user joe into this new group. And the apache-user should be in this group too.
