Hi Everyone,

I have a questions which i hope someone will be able to assist with.

I am trying to find a way to allow one user to access another's filesystem.

I have a CMS that i have developed that uses an absolute file path for image uploading etc., and it runs from a single fileset.

So what i am trying to do...

have the user where my CMS resides - say "/home/user1/public_html/cms/

be able to upload a file to

/home/user2/public_html/images/ or something like that.

Does that make sense?
It worked on a server not running cPanel, but i can't seem to get it to work on the cPanel server.
Is there something built into cPanel stopping me from doing this, or have i just managed to mess up the configuration?

Any advice is most appreciated.
Rob

You can setup a symlink to link from one directory to another and then disable the open_basedir tweak for your particular users in your Security area in cPanel WHM.

That should let you go from user folder to user folder.
Thanks Conor.

I will see what i can figure out.

di this work out? we're also trying to do something similar where we want to deploy only 1 set of libraries across different hosting accounts and deploy only user specific files on their publi_html folder
