Fixing permission settings on www folder
I spun up a new droplet right before the weekend and have been working on setting it up properly for my very small team. I’ve read a multitude of posts on StackOverflow and ServerFault about how to properly configure the “/etc/www/html” folder permissions.
I can get what seems like proper permissions for my own user, however when I try to log in to another user, they get permission denied regardless if we’re in the same group or not.
What I’m aiming at is properly securing the /etc/www/html folder without breaking anything for the www-data user (I’ll manually chmod any folder it needs write access to for uploads and such) and giving the group “webmasters” read/write access on “/etc/www/html” so that they can work in it. (Editing files, uploading, etc.)
Can anyone help me out?
