I'm having some issues with users read/write permissions on home directories.
I've an user who is allowed to upload data through ftp (let's say
ftp_user) and this user has it's own
I need to access
/home/ftp_user from other standard users (not everyone) in read-only mode, in order to see and copy uploaded content if needed.
I tried with a
chmod (644) on /home/ftp_user/, but in this way
ftp_user lost the ownership and read/write permissions. I could set a 777 but I don't think it's the best solution and I would like to grant read access only to some users.
more: the perfect solution would be to share only a specific directory, like
/home/ftp_user/shared. I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 if it matters.
