    We are running CentOS 5 and have a few (cPanal) user accounts that need to share data.
    One user account requires read/write access, the others read only.
    All users are running the jailshell.

    I've tried using a symbolic link to provide access to the shared directory ......
    ln -s /home/user1/public_html/SharedArea /home/user2/public_html/SharedArea

    However, when user2 tries to access the SharedArea directory (eg. via "cd" command) an error is returned ....
    -jailshell: cd: SharedArea: No such file or directory

    I've played with the permissions on the SharedArea directory, all to no avail.

    Any thoughts on how a shared directory can be achieved ?
