Hi!

Quick question about secondary users FTP access, I've been reading about setting up FTP accounts and giving out permissions, specifically in the help on setfacl and the set permission script. However I'm wondering if there's a way to tie this nicely into a bow and programmatically create a symbolic link between the newly permission-granted folder and the FTP user?

Or is the only way to start a session as the newly created account and create the symbolic link that way - as described here

That's what I was thinking - thanks Sean

Actually probably easier to just

  • Create the new user
  • User Paramiko (or whatever) to login and give group permission to the main user
  • Use main FTP account to give permission programmatically as a last step to the permission setting exercise
