    I have a silly question regarding FTP server!

    I mast have 4 ftp users with different ftp access types.


    Srv/www/ --------------------------------- user1 – read write access to all sub directories
    +++++++/www.example1.com--------------- user2 (it’s working)
    +++++++/www.example2.com--------------- user2 (it’s working)
    +++++++/pub------------------------------ user3 – read write access to directory
    +++++++/limited---------------------------- user4 – read write access to directory

    It’s possible to make 3 mores ftp users and make such permission schema?

    I’m am beginner in Linux bat this is a thin holds my from getting to Linux box

    Can’t some one point my to writhe direction or the most appreciated by a sample to make this.

    Yes, that possible.

    Set the home directory of user1 to /srv/www and the home directory of user3 and for to the directories /srv/www/pub and /srv/www/limited.

    If the user already exists, you can change the homedir in /etc/passwd.
    If it doesn't exist, you can specify the correct homedir when you create the user with the useradd command. Have a look at
    man useradd
