Permissions on /var/www/{multiple domain} for uploading web site files via SFTP


I have installed Apache successfully on ubuntu 16.04 and configured for multiple domain. It works fine. Now I want to give one user to upload via sftp for 2 domains. Restrict that user from accessing rest of the domains.

Example folder structure /var/www/ /var/www/ /var/www/ /var/www/ /var/www/

Planning to give permission for, domains to one user.

You can chroot jail the user to their home folder, ie /home/bob, and put public_html folder in their home folder. This prevents them from seeing anything else on the system.
