unable to configure a user to access ubuntu server via sftp to access the /var/www folder
Posted on 2014-03-10
I trying to configure a user account to access the server using their existing sftp account but I am not able to find their profile. since its not a system account it does not show up in /etc/passwd. so I created a new system account that allows me to access the server but when I got to the /var/www the folder says empty even though their are files in the folder It seems I am receiving permission denied message.
My goal is to allow the user to have access to the folder and its sub directories. the permissions of the folder are:
drwx--x--- Web Testers Folder name
I appreciate any suggestions.
