CVS is your friend. But there are also a ton of php scripts out there to do
what you want.


Yeah I hear a lot of people like CVS.

But I fail to realize how it might assist me though.

I'm not setting up a code repository, this is an actual WWW root
where a lot of different websites are hosted.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

And what PHP scripts are you talking about?

Thanks a lot,

I think the easiest way would be to add them all to a similar group (www, perhaps) and chown -R user:group /usr/local/www; chmod -R g+rw /usr/local/www This will give whatever group you specify read, and write access to the directory.
