General :: Chmod To Allow Read And Write Permissions For Directory?
Mar 31, 2010
I have created directories in root. I am looking for the chmod command to allow all users read and write permissions to a specific directory. I have done chmod 775 for a file but I need this for a directory. This includes permissions on all files and sub directories.
I've hit a wall here; I'm attempting to find some way by which to view files and cd into directories on a device mounted read-only. So I need the permissions to read, write, execute (and the same with directories), but chmodding is out of the question because I don't want to alter the drive one iota.
I guess what I could do--what I was thinking of initially--was to dupe the whole drive and then mess with permissions. This wouldn't affect the original (actually I'm working on a duplicate of the original, but I'm treating it as if it were the original) but I was hoping for something that would maintain data integrity. This is a forensic application and not altering the data is very important.
I own a particular file on a Linux system. I would like to give 2 groups (accounting, shipping) read access and only read access, and 3 users(Mike, Raj and Wally) write access and only write access. How can I accomplish this?
I want to simply mount an ext4 file-system onto a normal mount point in Ubuntu (/media/whereever), as read-writable for the current logged-in user, i.e. me.
I don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab, I just want to do it now, manually. I need super-user privileges to mount a device, but then only root can read-write that mount. I've tried various of the mount options, added it into fstab, but with no luck.
I have a CMS that has a brilliant backup option with one flaw, it can only create a full backup in a directory inside the web root. In this case /var/www/site/backups. This is not practical for security as the resulting tar.gz file contains a full mysql backup as well as other items that the general public shouldn't be downloading.What permissions do I need to set so that the directory /var/www/site/backups cannot be browsed to in a browser but can be read / written by the CMS when a PHP script calls it?
I am new to writing shell scripts. So, please bare with me. I am currently trying to write a shell script which will read the directory path as input from user and will traverse the Dir tree to find all available audio and video files. I have tried to write as much as I could but I don't know where I am making mistake as I get some files to be audio file which are actully tar balls. On the second note there are some files which video but script shows them to be audio. And, some video files are completely skipped. I am giving the shell script below so that you can see. I am using two external files as source which I am attaching.
#!/bin/bash #Let's load the extensions that we want to search for vdExt=$(cat vdExtList) adExt=$(cat adExtList)
I am running Karmic x64 on a HP laptop that has a cd/dvd burner. I have a r/w cd with files on it and I wish to add/remove files to it. After it mounts automatically on insertion, I unmount it and remount with: sudo mount /dev/sr0 -t iso9660 -w /media/cdrom (I tried assorted other hare-brained things also) but it always says that the filesystem is read only. Do I need to use a different device than sr0? Is it even possible under Ubuntu?
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?
Just finished downloading a game in .run format, i downloaded it to my Home>Downloads folder and ran these commands in terminal: (game is tremulous if it matters)
chmod +x tremulous.run ./tremulous.run
It started it up in the terminal and i began working my way through the installation process, and i tried to install it into my Home>Games folder. (Is it supposed to be home>games or your username>games?)
and it said PERMISSION DENIED. No write permission to Home/Games/
How do i give myself read and write permissions to my game folder?
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?
I have 4 machines; all multiboot. I want each machine to have full rw access to file shares on each other machine, AND, full rw access to the other partitions on the same machine home folder for UNbooted OS's. I imagine Samba will NOT handle all these configurations? What else do I have to do, so that, for example, if I have 2 machines on, and I boot up a third machine in another room, it will auto mount the other 2 machines' shares, and it export it's own shares to the other 2 machines? I want also each machine to have full rw access to shares on the UNbooted partitions of each machine.
I'm new to debian ,I was trying to mount my NTFS partition but I did that only with read permissions I couldn't install ntfs-config(allthough I have ntfs-3g installed).So I want to figure out how to mount my partitions with read/write permissions automatically as the systeme starts ?
I had created a file under a directory & set the permissions through chmod command but when I create another file under this directory, I get the default permissions. Is this due to umask or can I set the file permissions through chmod under a directory.
I'm pretty new to Linux but I know my way around. I've gotten Google Earth downloaded and am trying to install it. Everything is fine until I try to install it into /usr/local (or somewhere in there). The Google Earth Setup keeps telling me that I do not have write permissions on this directory. Question: How do I change the write permissions for this folder? Or should I install the program somewhere else? The last program I installed (xMind) installed into /usr/local.I am the only user (administrator
I would like not check first, and if not ok, then to write the permssisions. Means no use to write endessly on disk if not needed. How to check and fix the permissions to avoid writing (chmod o-rwx /home/*) ?
I run a small site and today I've discovered that my site is down. I found that cPanel has flagged the account suspended even though I haven't got any quotas on the account. I don't know what went wrong. I've tried to unsuspend the account in WHM but a certain part of the function failed.
safe_userchgid: chown: /home/crocbits/public_html: Operation not permitted at /scripts/cPScript/SafetyBits.pm line 93.
After searching the internet someone mentioned that the problem might lie in the permissions of the public_html folder. I had a look at the permissions and the folder had no permissions d----- When I try to chmod the folder I get this error:
chmod: changing permissions of `public_html': Operation not permitted
I have no idea what to do next. All the files in the directory are locked too. I tried to move them but this command isn't allowed either. I ran these commands under the 'root' user in SSH.
I have a Qnap 219p NAS to which I have connected a USB external harddrive. I can access the external harddrive from my windows box using the network share, but at first i couldn't access the folders. The permissions set in the NAS GUI for the external drive is correct and are identical to the permissions set to the 2 internal drives.
I ssh'ed to the nas and used 'chmod -R 770 /share/external/sds1' - this granted me access to the folders, and some files. I can open all files in the root, but if I go just 2 folders 'deeper', i can't open the files in this folder, and in the folders after that.
In ssh, if i navigate to the folder wher I cannot open the files and use 'ls -l', i can see that the permissions (770) hasn't been applied to these files. How can I get chmod to apply the 770 permission to all files, folders, subfolders and files in subfolders etc., without having to chmod every folder one by one?
I have Fedora 8 and we just switched over from a Windows "File Server" to Windows Server 2008 (10.1.1.17). I updated my fstab file and now when I go onto the Windows folders, I can list and read files, even save them, but new files are always read only.
fstab file (some, without the asterisks): //10.1.1.17/USERS/Jeff/fs /home/mriuser/Desktop/fs cifs rw,username=jsadino,password=**** 0 0
I've tried ntfs-3g, auto, ntfs, smb, some umask combinations, changing ownerships, changing permissions, everything I could think of, but still can't modify new files.
[root@localhost tmp10]# mkdir tmp2 [root@localhost tmp10]# cd tmp2 [root@localhost tmp2]# touch tmp [root@localhost tmp2]# ls -l
i borrowed an external hard drive from my friend to back up a load of stuff on my windows partition before reinstalling it. I am doing this through ubuntu. I am trying to zip up folders like My Documents etc and chuck them on the external hard drive but it always comes up with errors to do with read/write permissions. In the permissions tab on the folder properties of the ext hard drive it says I am owner but i have no file access (only folder access is create and delete files). When i try to give myself read/write permission it just goes straight back to nothing when i look at it again.
I have an external USB hard drive (sdb1) mounted at /media/Iomega HDD. When I try to do a chmod to a directory on this drive, chmod doesn't give me an error, but it doesn't change the privs - even when I'm root. Why is this?
Code: root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD# ls -lart total 2176732 drwx------ 1 dan dan 456 2010-08-01 16:24 Unison root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD# chmod -v a+rwx Unison mode of 'Unison' changed to 0777 (rwxrwxrwx) root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD# ls -larth total 2.1G drwx------ 1 dan dan 456 2010-08-01 16:24 Unison root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD# /usr/lib/klibc/bin/fstype /dev/sdb1 FSTYPE=unknown FSSIZE=0 root@d-desktop:/media/Iomega HDD
What are the possible problem when Windows access the file from Ubuntu got Read Only even though have a full permission to read, write and execute the file? Ubuntu to Ubuntu accessing the file there is no problem only Windows got a problem.
