    First collaborative project

    Hello!

    In a few weeks I'm about to be in charge of a collaborative web project. Since this is the first time I've been involved with something like this, I'm very excited and nervous and was hoping for some help in the "work environment setup". Basically, I'll be the "super user" who will be the only one accessing/changing scripts, css, etc. Other users will have personal folders where they will then add web pages. My folders would then look something like:

    Css Folder
    php scripts folder
    sitewide homepage


    TI would have control to edit, upload, and download any file on the system. However, I want all of the other users to just have editing/uploading/viewing access to their particular folders. In other words, if JoeShmoe is one of the users, he should just have a copy of the JoeShmoe Folder on his computer, and he should be able to mess with his own folder, but not download or change anything else on the server.

    Is there a way to do this using Dreamweaver? Or would I have to somehow set file permissions on the server?

    Any help in setting up the structure would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    -Eric

    Have you ever heard of GIT? This would solve a lot of problems that you are facing by allowing everyone to work on the code, but only one "master" user to push the final code onto the production server. It might by a viable solution to ensuring your team is organized and structured properly.

    No I haven't! It looks very interesting and may very well help with the project.

    Thank you...
