I'm confused.. Do you want to setup a website or filesharing?
FileSharing is probably want you want.
You can enable file sharing and within it you can enable webdav for iOS.
You set each sharepoint and give access to those sharepoints.
Mac users can use AFP if you have port 548 open.
iOS users can access via WebDAV over port 80 & 443
Thats a typical file server....
You can use the webserver to make files available for dowloading, but thats just downloading (not file sharing)

I have a related question. i created 2 websites/domains then i went to users and created 2 seperate "network" users then i went to ftp and selected each website and added only user A to site A and user B to site B. what's weird is that when i try to ftp using either of the users it seems to land on the same site. i looked at shared security for the folders and it only shows user a on site a folder and user b on site b folders. am i doing somehitng wrong or is this how it works in mountain lion server? i just want to give the domain owner ftp access so they can manage their files and only thier files. i also had to turn on open directory so that it would not create a local user but a network user. do i need to turn that off and just deal with having a bunch of local users as ftp user? i want to host multiple websites on the server and NO users remote on to server besides ftp.
edit 1: i only have 1 IP running on the server which i don't think it has any affect on this but thought i mention it :-)
edit 2: i just noticed one more thing that may help. i used filezilla to remote in using both users, one at a time. it seems to allow both users in but then it shows same directories. i then created a file using the one that was not supposed to have acces and it never sows up. but if i remote desktop to server i can see the new file in the correct folder. so it may have something to d o with the directory listing.

Yes, it is more of a one-way file server (what you call downloading), with a web interface to ease access.
But let's not get hung up on semantics; the goals remain whatever verbiage we choose.
Please don't hijack this thread with a different issue; start your own thread, that's what this site is for!
Update: have achieved most of the stated goals now.Solution was to make different service-only users, assigning them to the same user group, then setting the website to use that group for access. Find this better than editing a text file (httpd.conf).
This setup is working well enough, though still cannot set files whose permissions are exclusive to a single user, not appear in the file list to the other users. Yes, other users cannot download such files (due to permissions) but would prefer they not appear in the list at all.
Might just be an apache setting; will keep digging!
