Working on Ubuntu server on DigitalOcean. What I am trying to do is create 5 users for nodejs application development. When they deploy the application, it runs on ip:port but is there anyway to run on ip/user:port? OR can I assign specific port range to specific user so that there won't be conflict of using port?
Please comment if I am not clear. Suggestions highly appreciated.submitted by /u/procipher
