Jail new user to specified folder SFTP access, disable ssh, give permision to edit www-data files, install wordpress.
as the title say, i want to give new user SFTP access to folder so he/she can install wordpress alone without root and without ssh access, and be able to edit www-data files, and also i want him to be jailed only in the folder that i will specify so he cant snoop around my server.
i tried so much tutorials from google, but in the end user cant edit files created by wordpress itself or wordpress cant install plugins, when i set the file to be owned by the user wordpress cant install plugins, if i make www-data to own the files the user cant edit them. Im going nuts here if someone has step by step tutorial on what should i do please help me.
here is my sshd.config file
Match User user1 AllowTcpForwarding no X11Forwarding no ChrootDirectory %h ForceCommand internal-sftp
my apache setup for the new subdomain is working.
Thanks in advance guys
