When I set the setfacl, wordpress sites are giving 500 internal server
I am planning to set a user 'developer' with the home directory as '/home'
Inside the /home directory, each site is having its own ownership. For
example, /home/site1 should have ownership user1:user1 and /home/site2
should have user2:user2 and so on. If I create a user 'developer' with home
directory as /home, would he be able to access and modify the site files
inside /home/site1 and /home/site2 which is having different ownership. Its
not practical to add the user 'developer' to all the groups user1,user2
etc. Any thoughts on this ?
