I'm trying to grant permissions to a group for a given directory, so that multiple users can FTP in and have read/write permissions in the same directory. I tried doing 'chown -R :groupname /path/to/directory' but it only granted the permissions I wanted to the first person in the group. How should I go about doing this?
Are the actual file permissions set correctly on the files for the group? Instead of <code>755</code> you need to chmod to <code>775</code> for example. If they are owned by the correct group, that should get things settled...
