    I have a dedicated server and have 2 websites (lets call the accounts: mydomain and mydoman2) which share images users post on them. The images are stored in:

    I would like to have the ability of mydomain2 account to have all rights to read, delete, write from that account.

    here is what I have in http.conf:
    <VirtualHost MY_IP_ADDRESS:80>
        DocumentRoot /home/mydomain/public_html
        UseCanonicalName Off
        CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ combined
        CustomLog /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ "%{%s}t %I .\n%{%s}t %O ."
        ## User findhote # Needed for Cpanel::ApacheConf
        UserDir disabled
        UserDir enabled mydomain
         <IfModule mod_suphp.c>
           suPHP_UserGroup mydomain mydomain
    <IfModule !mod_disable_suexec.c>
    SuexecUserGroup mydomain mydomain
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /home/mydomain/public_html/cgi-bin/
    # To customize this VirtualHost use an include file at the following location
    # Include "/usr/local/apache/conf/userdata/std/2/mydomain/*.conf"

    I have disabled openbase_dir on my server, but that did not work. I've also tried adding directories as shown in apache manual but still can't access mydomain from mydomain 2 account.

    My managed server guy told me this can be done, if I disable suexec but I was also warned that this might open up security holes. Can this be done without disabling suexec? Or is it ok to disable suexec? Can't I modify the vhost file to permit the other directory? There must be a way... ;)

    If anyone knows, i'd appreciate the input :)

    If both the users of website1 and website2 are in the same Group then I think changing the permissions of pics directory to 775 might meet your requirement.
