Creating folders for users to upload photos in a photo sharing website
Posted on 2008-06-25
We want to create a photo sharing site for mountain biking, where registered users are given write/upload access to their own folder in the website, and nobody else except us as administrator can make changes in their folder. We want to maintain security in the process.
Ideally on registering, a user 's unique folder is created (physically or perhaps virtually?) and where only he has write permission, so that he can receive specific ftp access. How can this best done?
Our website is hosted, but we are able to create different ftps. Until now we have not done this, so are unsure what best to do here. We want to avoid doing this all manually if humanly possible.
