how to get more than one user to be in the GROUP for directory ownership?
I need "apache" and my username to share access to a directory because my
php script creates directories within a directory.
For example the directory /home/html/mysite/files, I want apache to be able
to create directories and file and I need to see those files and directories
when I use WinSCP using my username to login.
Currently, I did this and it allows the script to write directories:
chown username:apache files
I use WinSCP (which logs in using username) to check out what's inside those
directories and it errors out, permission denied.
Any ideas are much appreciated!

One normally uses a web browser to connect to the Apache server, and
traverses the directory structure according to the permissions enabled in
the Apache configuration. If you feel the need to add your username to
/etc/group as a member of "apache" then you might wish to seriously
reconsider your security ideals -- the php scripts should create the correct
directory and file permissions.
