Can two users share a home directory?
Posted on 2006-11-14
I have two users that both need to share a home directory. The home directory is on a raid device (path: /mnt/raid/images/jpg). I have a user (usera) set up with their home directory pointing to /mnt/raid/images/jpg. This is so that when they use vsftp they will start in this directory (they do not have shell access). The permissions for the directory are set to 777.
My question: will adding another user (user2) with the same home directory screw anything up? My gut feeling says no, but it's always better to double check (since my test server is currently smoking).
Please and thank you.
