You add the users to the group that need access, so your user and the www user. Then change owner of the folder to the group. Make sure the group is getting rw rights on the folder. Test with a separate folder if you're unsure.

groupadd your_groupname
  (to create your group)

usermod -a -G your_groupname gaaara
usermod -a -G your_groupname www-data

  (to add your users to the group)

mkdir ~/your_directory
  (create a test directory)

chown root:your_groupname ~/your_directory
  (change group of test directory)

chmod g+w ~/your_directory
  (give group write access)

Now logon as user gaaara and www-data and verify that you can write to the test directory.

Is it working, yes or no?

What do you mean with torrent and owncloud? There is nothing about that in your question?
