Now, you need to set an acl for that new user giving rwx permission in /var/www directory.
Thats how I solved this problem.

I mean you need to create an access control list for the user allowing it to to read-write-execute in the directory, I am not talking about the usual chmod driven permission.
Here is how you can do this:
edit the /etc/fstab file in the following manner:
Quote:
/dev/sda7 / ext3 defaults,acl 0 0
The mount point can be different depending on the way your system is partitioned, if the /var partition is mounted somewhere else then you need to edit that line by putting ,acl option after defaults.
Then remount that partition:
Quote:
#mount -o remount,acl /
Set the acl:
Quote:
#setfacl -m u:username:rwx /var/www
