I use a droplet running
Ubuntu 20.04 and
Apache2 to host a development domain,
example.com and for each project I setup a subdomain,
sub.example.com pointing to
I have a
sudo enabled account on the droplet that I can use to
rsync a project im working on, but I was thinking it would be better to have a unique user for each project with write permission to ONLY that project folder. So I would never be able to accidently push a project to wrong folder.
Is this good way to manage multiple development projects? Or is there a more common best practice?
