Noob Question - Access Control - Offshore Developer

  • Posted February 17, 2014

Hi - I am new around these part and to linux, but you have to start somewhere.

I am going to be using a developer that I know, but still would rather not give him root on the box if I do not have to, can someone direct me to how I should be setting up access for contractors on an ubuntu box. I understand access control, from the windows side just not real familiar with linux yet.

Thanks

One way would be to give him limited SFTP access. <br> <br>Create the developer an account. <br>Limit it to a specific folder. <br>Get him to upload the deployment.
