Hi,

      How can i give access to more user on a folder? so far what i know chown will only chown for one user, and if you chown for another user, the previous chown user will lost permission to that folder.

Regards

yes this right
f.e.
useradd -g users -d /home/user1 -s /bin/bash user1
useradd -g users -d /home/user2 -s /bin/bash user2
mkdir /home/users
chown -R user1:users /home/users
chmod -R 775 /home/users
