Just to make sure that I do the FTP accounts correctly. Create a user with home directory to /var/www to access the directory. I'm not sure how to apply the rights for that user to have read, write, execute or mainly owner rights.

Also, how do I add access to a MySQL database for that same user or a different user for security purposes. So I can install scripts that require MySQL i.e. phpNuke, IPB, etc. This is where I'm lost, I've gotten to use of automation with with creating the accounts and databases with CPanel. I'm trying to learn as much as I can about using just CLI to administor the server.

Greatly appreciate the support, knowledge and assitance that everyone puts in here,
