I'm running my own dedicated server and would like to create a directory that all accounts could access. Here is an example:
I've got set of pictures that will be shown on several different domains running on my box. Instead of uploading the same pictures to every single account I would like to set up a symbolic link to a directory called "pictures" so each account could just link to it i.e. http://pictures.Account01.com,http://pictures.Account02.com, etc... .
I've done some reading on how to do it but I'm a little confused as to the logistics.
1. I would like to be able to connect to the directory via FTP so where should I make this "shared" directory in my filesystem so I can FTP into it with out logging in as Root. Can I just create it in one of the existing accounts and create symbolic links to it?
