I'm trying to do something a little tricky with redhat linux, and apache. Basically what i need to do, is have ftp access for a number of users, and have their home directories where apache is living, i.e. /var/www/html/home. The users can upload their html files to these directories. The problem that i have, is i do not want the users to know who the other users are, or view their html files. How can i achieve this? Is it easier for me to maybe create different home directories, and run a cron job to move the files to the webserver directories every minute or so? or is there an easier way?

I saw some kind of solution for this:
first you create directories with names of letters
then you place user (in proper letter directory - xand in 'x' nedo in 'n'
by giving directories the 755 mode other users cannot see the ones whose names start with different letter.
that's just something I saw somewhere
I don't really know any other solutions.
