Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

i have this folder/subdomain structure on my server:

--- website.com
    --- sub.website.com
    --- sub2.website.com
    --- sub3.website.com

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 sub2.website.com and sub3.website.com? 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
