My professor has a homepage on Internet based on HTML. The grad students have specific page for themselves. My professor uses University servers. I'm curious to know how is that possible to give the grant of access to specific folders to each student?
All this would be is each student having a different user account for adding files to the server. The underlying file transport technology is unimportant as this could be done using FTP, SSH, or even a web portal managed by the university to load files to the server. In effect the same underlying process is used. A directory is created and the student is given a user account and permissions to load files to that directory but are unable to make alterations to other directories through the same file transport technology.
