Re: Changing permission in user's home directory
On our server we create an user for every of our customer and we run an
instance of home-made java application (as the customers respective user). The
issue is just who ever set up those servers created a home directory per user
and set up everything in that directory. Including static files needed by ngnix
for which I need to do something like $chgrp www-data <path> after an update.
I'm aware there is no technical reasons for having such a weird directory
constellation. The issue is just reorganizing file hierarchies on docents of
productive installations is not that easy, so I hoped for an easy work-around
for the old installations. At least until the long overdue revision of the
update and installation procedure has been done.
