Can someone point me in the right direction for this setup? I am not sure of the commands needed to do this or the terminology. My hosting account is on Red Hat 7.2 and I have shell access.

I need to setup mulitple password protected directories in a website. I want the directories to actually be pointers (terminology?) to a master directory that contains master files.

Directory structure

/master/admin (I may put this one outside of the public_html)

/usr/bob/public files
/usr/bob/config files
/usr/bob/admin (password protected for bob and points to master/admin)

/usr/mary/public files
/usr/mary/config files
/usr/mary/admin (password protected for mary and points to master/admin)


Thanks, Jamie
