Linux (Ubuntu) Sync A Folder With Different File Permissions

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm sure this has been discussed before but it is not yet fully clear to me how i would go about the following situation.


I use BTsync for a backup solution as well as syncing some user files among our community.


- default instance of btsync is running with root permissions, in order to sync email, logs, configuration etc...


Now i have another folder that is owned by my ftp-server and that also needs syncing. How can i give btsync access to this folder without changing the ownership or permission settings on the files (777 is NOT a option)


I guess i would need to run a second instance of btsync ? how would i go about this (set-by-step) ?



additional info:

host = linux ubuntu

btsync = installed from the unofficial PPA


Thanks in advance for your time !
