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

I have a website and I have a super admin FTP access. Now, I am in need to share the FTP credentials with others and I wish to give them FTP access in such a way that they could be able to access only few folders and not all the folders.

How can I achieve it?

Xtra details:

I have created a different group 'candidates' and added a user 'testcandidate' into it. Now, my project files are at /home/project/manu/ and I want to give readonly access to the user 'testcandidate' ... I mean when he logs in, he must not change anything. But it should work as usual to 'root' user.

which FTP server type have you installed on the server? And don't you think its a better idea to chroot(jail) the FTP users in question to restrict access? –  i.h4d35 Feb 12 '13 at 16:54

and say for example in the 'candidates' group, if there is another user called 'test2', do u want a separate set of permissions for that user? –  i.h4d35 Feb 21 '13 at 14:42
