VPS Dev Permissions

Post by sevensrequiem » Fri May 03, 2019 4:27 pm

How would I go about setting permissions for different users on the vps that only have access to one or two folders and can't access anything else or tamper with anything else on the vps?

Also how would I make it so that same user can access the same folder on FTP without being able to tamper with anything else?

Is this on Windows or Linux?

It is fairly straightforward to create multiple accounts on either OS. When you create the account, generally the user will get its own home folder that it will have exclusive permissions to. You can install an FTP server that will then allow the user to access that folder through FTP (on Windows, you can use IIS; on Linux, you could use vsftpd or an analogue).
