I'm trying to figure out how to allow certain users who are also me to access a directory of files that I want to use for all of my users.
The files I want to use are on
account1 in the directory
/home/account1/public_html/source/engines and I want the directory
/home/account2/public_html/source/engines to use the same exact files without having to upload them to both places every time I change them, so I created a simple symbolic link and added
account2 to the group
account1 (while still keeping its own group as the primary). It still gives me a Permission Denied error though. Is there any way I can grant
account2 and other accounts that I create for myself access to those files? I don't want them to be global to all users because I don't want my hosted users to be able to access them, only my users.
groups account1 returns
account1 : account1
groups account2 returns
account2 : account2 account1
/home/account1/public_html/source/engines and all its files belongs to
Any other information you might need just ask.
