I have a ftponly user "rom" in my box. This is used by our vendor to send files through ftp. When they send files the ownership of files are all the same as user name group created in this machine.
But our application engineers use another user name "deb" to process these file. But as the owner of these file are "rom", they cannot process with their user. Manually they modify the user name and group and then they able to process.
The group ID of the two users are different and its application dependent.
how should the ownership will be modified automatically or is there any workaround or script to modify the ownership of these file for application user's?
Yeah, I understand. But problem is that, This user can only do ftp. and no shell is associated in this user. And the ftp user is a remote office, who's are only responsible for upload files in our server.
