I'm running an ubuntu server with apache and I have web directory which is owned by the user www-data and the group www-data. WordPress works great in this directory. It can auto update and I can upload files.
I want to also create a web directory which is owned by another custom user I'm going to add. However when I change the owner on the web directory from www-data to the customer user WordPress is no longer to auto update and I can not upload unless I change the group permission.
Is there a way to make my custom user act like the apache www-data user?
