No, they cannot. Each user has their own working copy (or even more
than one, if desired) in their own public_html directory in their own
home directory on the server. It's just the same as if the working
copy were locally on their own computer, with the added benefit that
the system administrator has only a single central Apache / PHP /
MySQL / whatever server to maintain instead of having to maintain all
that separately on each user's desktop machine.
