Ubuntu 14.04 Apache 2.4.7
I have a small web server set up and have about 5 users for whom I host websites. My web structure is like this:
In Apache, I've created virtual hosts for each domain that points to the correct directory in my web directory setup. Everything works fine and as expected.
The problem has to do with user access...
I've created a group called www-users and I've added each of my 4 users to this group. Now, I need to make sure that anyone who is in the www-users group can read/write to the /var/www directory (preferably only their own, but I understand that can be done via an sshd configuration so let's ignore that).
Can anyone help me solve this? I've searched Google for a few days and am finding very contradictory answers. What is the proper way to give a group access to a directory owned by root like /var/www is?
