Sorry, but this is probably a terribly stupid question. I'm running a Linux2 instance on AWS. I have a number of sites running there, including a couple of wordpress sites.
One of the sites wants an FTP account so they can edit their wordpress files directly.
I want to create an FTP account and lock it to the site directory.
i've read a number of interesting answers here and on other sites (eg How to create a FTP user with specific /dir/ access only on a Centos / linux installation)
it looks like every answer says after adding a new user you :
chown –R <-username> /var/www/mydomain.com
my question is, is this changing the ownership of this directory? is this something i need to do? will this affect the permissions and access of other users?
Sorry for the probably silly question, still fairly new to Unix and don't want mess up a live website.
