Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible for me to have multiple users, which have access to the same app and files? Me and a friend want to work on a facebook app, and were wondering how we could go about doing it. I created two users with shell and ftp access, but they have access to separate files and directories. Sorry if this is a stupid question, I'm new to this :)

Yes, you can do this by granting access for the shell/ftp users to access the facebook application.

However, for collaborative application design, I would still have to suggest using a revision control system like git. There are ways to collaboratively use git to manage applications, all without needing extra users.

Hope that helps!

You must grant the second user permissions to the directories you want them to work on in the main account with setfacl,
