Debian :: Don’t Have Write Permissions To Edit Files

Apr 13, 2016

I got Whonix set up, and everything in place to be running correctly and I was on cloud nine. The only problem I'm having is that whenever I try to go in and change my index.html files in /var/www/, or really do anything (add new file/folder, save or delete a file) I get the message that I don't have the right permission to do anything other than open and close the folders and files.

Ubuntu :: Edit File Permissions - Read / Write Access

May 6, 2010

I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse.
I've read in several places that
Code:
chmod 755 /var/www
will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?

Programming :: Sed Regular Expression - Write Script To Edit Text Files?

Jun 29, 2010

I am trying to write a script to edit text files formatted like this:

Code:
(MCAL@Contig766:0.30207,CGIG@CVIR_Contig1014:0.13977,(HASI@HDIS_Contig573:0.16828,(CAPI@LCIN_5594371:0.36581,CFOR@FQH745302RIQ7Y:1.91244)0.160:0.00019)0.939:0.15648);
There are never line breaks or spaces in the actual files.

I want to delete all instances of the character "@" and everything between it and the next "," (including that comma) or the next ")" (including that close parentheses) whichever comes first. My desired output file would be like this:

Code:
(MCAL,CGIG,(HASI,(CAPI,CFOR)0.160:0.00019)0.939:0.15648);
I figured out how to do this using sed for either "," or ")" but both looking for whichever comes first.

Ubuntu :: Advanced - IT Groups Can Read / Write Files But Others Have No Permissions

Jan 28, 2011

I have a file server running 10.04. I have a user that belongs to 2 groups (users is the primary and IT is the secondary). I have permissions set up so that this user and other users that belong to the IT groups can read/write files and others have no permissions whatsoever. I have also set the umask to 0007 so that any files created have the effective permissions. My concern is this: since my primary group is users, is it possible for me to create files with the owner group IT for only this specific folder?

Debian :: Suid And Writing Files Permissions In The ET Server?

Feb 22, 2010

I have tried to configure an Enemy Territory Server in an way that a common user could run it just executing a command line. The first thing I did was writing a script like that

/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/etded +set dedicated 1 +set net_port 27960 +set fs_game etpub +set fs_homepath /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/27960 +set sv_punkbuster 1 +set +exec server.cfg +set +exec punkbuster.cfg +set +exec bots.cfg

and then putting it in the /usr/local/bin directory. Ok, the things seem to be fine, but then I realized that the program tries to write some config and log files. I noticed that because some warnings appear in the command line, like that Couldn't write etconfig.cfg always that I run the command as a normal user. On the other hand, if I give writing permission to these files, all the warnings disapear.
But I don't think it is a good way, because someone could change these files by hand, what would not be good.

My last try was to set the suid of the script up, with the command chmod u+s /usr/local/bin/etded-server
But as I already knew that suid does not work well with shell script I wrote a C source like that:

[Code]...

Debian :: Change Default Permissions For Newly Created Files?

Jan 19, 2011

I'm new to Debian. I've read the documentation on this but it is too heavy for a new user to understand. I would like to change the default permissions for newly created files/directories.

I want all newly created files by 'user1' to have the default permissions of:
1. "owner can read and write"
2. "group can read and write"
3. "other can read only"

Permission 1 and 3 are already default. But I would like number 2 to be default as well. (the current default for group is read only).

Fedora :: Edit The Permissions For Directories In 12?

Mar 22, 2010

I tried using Nautilus - nada (under root no less). Tried using file browser (nada again) Tried going to "places" and the directory I wanted - right click, permissions won't let me change squat. The folders I want to change are shared folders on my network at home and sometimes I transfer files between computers to different places. Can't do it tho, cuz of the permissions. Is CHMOD the answer? If so, how do I do it? For instance, In terminal, I issued the command (as root) chmod 777 movies I thought this would allow any device in the house to write to this directory, but the permissions didn't change at all. So what do I have to do?

On my Ubuntu machine I simply run Nautilus as root and it allows me to do this.
So what's different in Fedora?

Debian :: Default Ownership Of Folders And Files - Should Own By A User Without Root Permissions

Feb 12, 2011

Being new to Linux, i've just about got used to the Debian setup procedure now, but had a quick question on the default ownership of files and folders. On my default Debian installation, almost all the folders and files are owned by root:root. Is this the correct advised configuration or should the folders and files be owned by a user without root permissions - eg user:user?

Ubuntu :: Allow Write Permissions To The /var/www Folder?

May 31, 2011

There are lots of tutorials and opinions on file permissions and web hosting.
So lets say I wanted to allow write permissions to the /var/www folder.

which would be best practice?

Chown -R user... allow a specific user to have write capabailities.

use gksudo nautilus (unsure what this does)

or open the folder to all parties.

If anyone has any opinions on file permissions in general or web hosting security then feel free to throw them at me.

Ubuntu :: Edit Options To Force Mounting With Write Permission To User?

Dec 29, 2010

I am digging the forum through and cannot find the answer. My problem is, the usb hard drive when plugged in get automatically mounted what is great. Unfortunately I get only read permissions, while need write too.There are no any entries in fstab, so I do not know what does handle automounting and how to edit options to force mounting with write permission to user (root obviously can write). Are they hald options or any other app does this? Where to edit them? The drive is not permanently ON, just switch it when need, so it has to work every time I put it on.

Nov 22, 2010

we have a data transfer network drive, shared via nfs and samba.But now I got the special demand to make any of the files read and wirteable, regardsless of the permissions they had before.With acl I get the right permissions (via default values) but the standard unix permissions overwrite this. e.g. when I have 644, it does not care that the group has write permissions)Does someone have an idea (except chmod via cronjob )
