I’m running Ubuntu 14.04 (LEMP) I need proper access for both “www-data” and “example” user (myself).
I used this command
chown -R example:www-data /var/www/html
As a temporary solution I just switch back and forth between these 2 commands
to upload via sftp:
chown -R example /var/www/html
and then to have my homepage running properly again:
chown -R www-data /var/www/html
How can I get this to work without changing permissions all the time?
