    Default Help Topics: Multiple Directories For One Group

    Multiple Directories for the user require the use of aliases. Aliases are virtual paths. When a user logins in to your FTP server if you have specified an alias for additional directories then they will show up like normal directory in the users home directory. Thus allowing them access to the additional directories.

    Screen 5.03.1 shows a group that has multiple directories.

    Screen 5.03.1:


    Notice: The big 'H' next to the directory designates that directory as being the home directory.
    The home directory is the directory the a user in the group will see when they login.

    1. Right click on the secondary directory



    2. Click Edit aliases

    A window similar to this will appear:


    3. Input / <insert a name here>
    <insert a name here> can also be a path like "/Some Directory/My Directory".

    Example:
    When the user of the group logs into my FTP server I want them to see this secondary directory as "Client Installer". So I input "/Client Installer" for step 3.


    4. Click OK

    Optional Step - Multiple Aliases
    OS.1: If you have more that one outside directory you want the user to have access to then repeat steps 1-4, giving each additional directory a different alias.

    Screen 5.03.5 - Example settings of a group with multiple aliases:


    How it appears to a user of the beta tester group(Screen 5.03.5) when they connect to the FTP server using an FTP client:

    Default Help Topics: Group Permissions and Having a User's Permissions Override

    You want to set up group permissions because it will be the easiest to manage, however you wish to have one user in the group have a different permissions for one of the group directories.

    Screen 5.10:


    1. Add the user to the group if you have not

    2. On the FileZilla server interface click Edit

    3. Click Users

    3. Click the user's name

    4. Click Shared folders

    Screen 5.11 - Your screen should look similar to this:


    5. Click Add on the middle of Screen 5.11

    6. Select the folder you wanted the user to have different permissions on

    7. Set the permissions
    More information about permissions can be found here.

    Screen 5.12: Your screen will look similar to this:


    Notice: Do not give the directory an alias in the user shared folders(Screen 5.12). It has an alias in the group shared folders.

    8. Click OK


    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Below is why the content above on this post was created. You do not have to read anything below this, it is only to show what issue the server admin was experiencing. If you performed the above mentioned steps you will not experience the same thing as the user below did.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Problem(As asked by a User):

    I've ran into a situation where I want to share directories to a group of users with a set of permissions, and give elevated privileges to specific users. I created a group named "Dev" and added homedir, directory1, directory2 and directory3 with Read privileges to the group for all directories (and homedir as the Home Directory for all).

    Since I wanted to use heritage for the privileges, I also created 3 users with "Dev" membership as user1, user2 and user3. When I log in and ask for the list from any user, I get:

    directory1
    directory2
    directory3

    The second step was to give individual privileges to specific users. As you might have guessed, I wanted to give user1 write privilege to directory1, user2 write privilege to directory2 and user3 write privilege to directory3. To do so, I created in each personal user profile a directory alias the same way I created it for the group except that I added write permission. When I go back to the listing as user1, I now get the following:

    directory1
    directory1
    directory2
    directory3

    (And so on: user2 has two directory2, and user3 as two directory3). However, changing to "directory1" from "user1" account effectively works and write privilege is given as specified and overridden by the specific user settings, while directory2 and directory3 only have read privilege. Should the server, in this situation, detect the collision of aliases and only display the effective final overridden directory alias ? Maybe I'm doing it wrong; this idea of doing heritage comes from the way of functioning of Serv-U file server.

    Thank you !

    Solution:

    Remove the alias from the USER shared folder settings.

    Code:
    Group(Shared Folders):
       Directory   Alias
    H   F:\FTP
       F:\d1   F:\FTP\d1
       F:\d2   F:\FTP\d2
       F:\d3   F:\FTP\d3
    
    User:
       Directory   Alias
       F:\d1
    The the settings above work. Effectively d1 of user settings overrides d1 of the group settings.

    Default Help Topics: Using Autocreate while configuring group shared folders

    If Autocreate is enabled for a group directory it will automatically create directories if you use :u in the directories path while setting up the group shared folders.

    If your screen does not look like Screen 5.03: Open the admin interface -> Click Edit -> Click Groups -> Click Shared folders

    Screen 5.03:


    1. Select the directory on Screen 5.03 that you want to have user specific folders

    2. Click Rename

    3. Click at the end of the directory path

    Your screen will look similar to:


    4. Type \:u

    5. Press Enter

    If you have not clicked the Autocreate check box on Screen 5.03 to enable autocreate do that now.

    Your screen will look similar to:


    6. Click OK or continue configuring the group settings
    You have finished setting up a directory that uses autocreate to create user specific folders for group members. When the user connects to the FTP server the first time FileZilla server will create a directory that uses the user's name within the directory(e.g. E:\Beta Testers).

    Default 4. Shared Folders for a User Who is a Member of a Group

    This post contains information on how to add additional directories for a user that is a member of a group. If you want to give the user of a group different permissions for a directory they have access to as a member of the group read this.

    Your screen should look like Screen 4.09. If it does not you can access it by: Opening the admin interface -> Click Edit -> Click Users -> Click the user's name

    Screen 4.09:


    1. Click "Shared folders" on the left side of Screen 4.09

    You should now see Screen 4.10.

    Screen 4.10:


    2. Click "Add" on the middle of Screen 4.10

    3. Select a folder from the list
    This will be the folder the user can access.

    Your screen will now look similar to Screen 4.11.

    Screen 4.11:


    As you can see the file and directory permissions became click-able.

    4. Set the user permissions

    Set the user permissions according to how much you want the user to be able to do.

    Note: Directory is another word for folder.

    Files:
    Read: They can view/download any file in the directory.
    Write: They can upload/create new files.
    Delete: They can delete files in the directory.
    Append: Alter files
    Directories:
    Create: They can create directories in the directory.
    Delete: They can delete directories in the directory.
    List: They need this to be able to view the directory.
    +Subdirs: This will make it so they can see sub-directories (Directories within the current directory)

    5. Right click the directory

    Screen 4.12:


    6. Click Edit aliases

    This window will appear:


    7. Input / <insert a name here>
    <insert a name here> can also be a path like "/Some Directory/My Directory". If you want the user's name to appear in the directory name you can do so by using ":u"(e.g "/:u's pictures").

    Example:
    When the user(e.g. tester2) logs into my FTP server I want them to see this additional directory as "Source". So I input "/Source" for step 3.



    8. Click OK

    Your screen will look similar to:


    Optional Step - Access to multiple directories
    OS.1: If you want the user to have access to multiple directories repeat steps 2-8.

    9. Go on to the next part of this section.
