I need to grant access via SFTP to a specific folder with full write permissions from the root of this folder. I made it work but can't figure out a way to provide write permission on the / of the root.
I read that the common way to solve this is just to create a subfolder for each user but this one contains existing files which are used all around the website.
In short :
/ should not be readable (this is correct)
/uploads/ is not writable (**but should** by any means)
/uploads/* is writable (and should)
This is what I have done so far :
/var/www/uploads is owned by root:root with 755 permissions. (775 prevents user to even log in)
/var/www/uploads/* is owned by newuser:sftp 775 permissions.
Match group sftp
AllowGroups ssh-users sftp
users are created like this :
useradd -d /var/www/uploads -m newuser -g sftp -s /bin/false
Thank's a lot!
