WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I access my git account using my webfaction ssh credentials. However I want another developer to be able to push and interact with this git repo(and obv not have root ssh access) so have set up a second user by doing htpasswd within the repo, and follwoing password prompets etc. However when I try to externally clone this repo using this new user via seconduser@rhys.webfactional.com:/home/webapps/git/reponame I get a permission denied.

Is there a setting I am missing, or is this not possible to do?

Htaccess will provide permissions using the webserver, SSH however requires you to assign a secondary SSH user and than grant them permissions within the file-system as outlined here.
