I'm a bit at a loss as to how to set my permisssions on a Linux Web Server we are running.
I have several websites, to which I want to allow some of my clients FTP access, however I do not want them to be able to go to my other clients websites to read/write data to their directories.
The apache www user is a member of the users group.
I have been setting up each FTP user as a member of the users group too.
How can I allow access to each FTP users directories, while not permitting other FTP users to access, whilst also allowing the www user to read the files!??
I hope you follow...

i donīt think there is a clean way with using permissions only (maybe, there is, but i have an easier solution for you: ). if people donīt have shell-access, you might want to setup your ftp server to use a "root" directory that is inside their doctree.
if you are running any server-side languages, this wonīt help though, then i need to think about your permissions again
