Disable FTP user from accessing subdirectory - repost

Budget $30 - $250 USD
Bids 22
Average Bid $56

Hello, We have a live website that has a lot of in-house codes that was written by me.
Recently we want to hire a two freelancers who will be working remotely on our site and we want to restrict their FTP access.

We have two directories in the site that they will be working on:
/home/site/public_html/cgi-bin >> PERL Coder
/home/site/public_html/cgi-bin/theme/ >> HTML Coder

I do not want PERL and HTML coders to access each other's files
When I say access I mean they should not be able to see,edit, or download each other's files

Successful bidder will teach me how to:
1. Create FTP user accounts in Centos using SSH (Servers have Cpanel with Pure-FTPD)
2. Restrict those FTP users to their own directory only
3. In case of perl coder [/cgi-bin] restrict him from accessing subdirectory [/cgi-bin/theme/]

As I mentioned above sometimes we use Cpanel Pure-FTPD but when I create FTP users using Cpanel I can only assign them a directory and they will have access to all of it's subdirectory. So PERL coder will have access to HTML coders files since /theme is a subdirectory of /cgi-bin.

Thank you for bidding.

    I have over 8 years of experience in the field of systems administration both windows and Unix/Linux systems. But my personal favourite is Linux systems administration. I have worked with various reputable companies around the world as a systems administrator. I also have had my own hosting business for a while. I am pretty comfortable with command line and in fact I prefer setting up systems using a command line. Server Solutions: - Experienced in installing, configuring, and administering all Linux and Windows Servers, and applications. - Expert in Apache, Nginx, DNS, Shell Scripting, WHMCS, Puppet, Vmware, and almost anything related to systems administration. - Specialist in Migration of servers without any down time. Other than working on servers, I am a big fan of Game of Thrones. So if you want to discuss whether Jon Snow really is dead or whether Queen Daenerys Targaryen will regain the iron throne, just hit me up. It won't cost you anything, that's for sure!
