Access to another users directory


Hello I just created a media account to allow media to be uploaded to the server, I have another 2 user accounts I need to grant permissions 2 access whats in the media users home directory, I tried adding the other 2 user accounts to the media user group then making the media home directory group writable but I can still not access the media home directory... Any ideas?

Are all parents directories of the home directory readable and executable for the user? readable: you can open files/directories executable: you can list the directory

Works now, not sure why it was working the firs time looks like I did everything correct the first time.

I set g+rwx on the media home directory and added the users to the media group.
