    Is it possible to have two accounts but have one of the accounts access both home dirs via shell with permission to change and write data.

    I have two users;
    1 bob /home/bob
    2 bill /home/bill

    I want bob to be able to access and control /home/bill from shell and not wreck the account to the point of it not working. Is this possible or is doing an add-on domain a better solution?

    A add-on domain would be the safest solution and easier to manage from a single account. If more control and separation is needed, how about making Bob a reseller and Bill a client.

    I really would like to maintain seperation and control individually on my end. I guess the one thing I forgot to add is that both users have 2 parked domains. I haven't looked lately but can you park a domain onto an add-on domain?

    I don't want to make bob a reseller and I am not sure that it would give him anymore privledges in shell over bill account, of course I could be wrong. I always do everything in root myself but only because it's my server so what I am doing is fairly new to me. I know it can be done but I want to make sure it doesn't break something.
