I have a server running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I need someone to talk to me on skype and provide me a step by step walkthrough on how I can achieve my goal below: I created a new user on the server, added him to a group, and am trying to set group permissions so they can write to the /var/www directory. The problem I have is if I connect to the server using root to SFTP, I can write to the /var/www folder. If I use the new user I created I cannot. I'm looking for a step by step walk-through on how I can configure this from the ssh terminal window.
