I've created a subdirectory and assigned permissions will full r/w/x access granted to the user 'vvanglers':
drwxrwxr-x 4 vvanglers team 4096 Feb 18 20:48 vvanglers
However, when I su or ssh at the vvanglers user I get the error:
$ cd vvanglers sh: 1: cd: can't cd to vvanglers
This directory is also the user's home directory:
# finger vvanglers Login: vvanglers Name: Directory: /var/www/flybook/gone/websites/v/vvanglers Shell: /bin/sh
The goal here is to grant access to their home folder only and lock them out of the parent directories (shared environment). I'm not a sysadmin but it seems like the permissions look fine to me : / any guidance is greatly appreciated!
