i have this folder/subdomain structure on my server:


if i login via sftp with my admin user i can see every folder. i just created a ‘myuser’ and via ftp it can view his /home/myuser folder.

what’s the best way to permit it to also view and i'm using ubuntu as my server. thanks a lot.

Use file system acl (man setfacl for details) so that the owner can give read/execute access to these directory to myuser

please let me know if you want more help.
