So I've tried looking this up but I've not found similar examples (please feel free to refer to them if your Google skills are better than mine).
What I'm trying to do is as follows: I am hosting a website on my own machine, and its contents are located at /var/www. I've made 'jordan' the owner of that group using 'chown' and I have no problems making, creating, editing files within that subdirectory as user 'jordan'. Within this directory, I have created a folder called 'recipes' and a user called 'recipe'. The problem is that 'recipe' cannot chmod any of the files in this directory. Additionally, as 'jordan', I cannot edit any of the files in the 'recipes' directory.
Is there a way to make both 'jordan' and 'recipe' belong to the same group which has chmod privileges for that folder and will allow 'jordan' to edit/write files?
