General :: Give Write Permissions To Multiple Users On A Folder In Ubuntu?
May 9, 2011
There is a folder that is owned by user tomcat6: drwxr-xr-x 2 tomcat6 tomcat6 69632 2011-05-06 03:43 document. I want to allow another user (ruser) write permissions on document folder. The two users (tomcat6 and ruser) does not belong to same group. I have tried using setfacl: sudo setfacl -m u:ruser:rwx document
but this gives me setfacl: document: Operation not supported error.
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 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?
how do i give group write permissions in fstab? i'm trying to mount a virtualbox shared folder. currently my fstab looks like this Code: Share_Name /mnt/point vboxsf rw,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0 i want to give both the owner and group, write permissions. currently, only the owner has write permissions, and group read with these mount options.
I just created a 2nd user on my computer. I've got the hard drive that ubuntu runs on, and then a 2tb drive for media. If the 2tb is mounted on my desktop, it won't show up on his desktop even if I'm logged out. It won't show up on his unless I unmount on mine.
If I'm logged out I'm obviously not using it. So why doesn't it show up? He has all privileges. Is there a way to make this work without having to unmount?
I'm running karmic btw. If you need computer info let me know what to type into the terminal and whatnot and I'll paste it all here!

how to give full set of permisions to an user in linux to access a folder?
I Have Configure Samba server in Centos, I need give permission like for some user(5User) can able to read and write the particular folder, and again i need give some another user(6user) can only read permission for same folder.
I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.
I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.
I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?
this directory has permissions 750 and is owned by user1 and group user1 I have an admin user that is primarily a part of group admin, but also a part of group user1 what would stop admin from having read and execute permissions on this directory? I'm running clamav and have a clamd daemon running as user admin (I could run it as any user, and I may make a special user later, but I don't want to run it as user1, user2, etc).
I have 2 (technically lots more, but let's just say 2 for now) users, user1 and user2 that have home directories /home/user1 and /home/user2. each is owned and group owned by user1:user1 and user2:user2 respectively with permissions of 750. my admin user is part of groups admin, user1, and user2 I need this to be able to scan my user's directories using the command (is this correct?):
If I change the directory permissions to 755, it works fine.Or if I leave the permissions 750 and change the directory group ownership to admin, it works fine. So, why would this be? Obviously it is a permissions issue, but why is it not reading admin as part of the user1 group and allowing the same permissions as it does when making the directory group-owned by admin?
I have setup a NFS server and this the content of /etc/exports at the server with IP A.B.C.D1 is:/home/shared A.B.C.D2(rw,no_root_squash)Problem is, only the root at A.B.C.D1 and A.B.C.D2 can write to that folder.
I have a remote directory shared over NFS called tech with perms set as 0750 and owner set to root:tech. I have 2 groups: tech, and techAdmin. tech can read and execute within tech/. techAdmin can read, write, execute. I have 4 users: user1, user2, user3, user4. user1 and user2 is a member of techAdmin, user3 and user4 are members of tech. simple so far...but wait here's the problem. If user1 creates a file inside tech, user2 cant read or modify it because user1 owns it. Here's a few sites that reference this problem:
I'm using a Ubuntu Desktop 10.04 32-bit machine as my file server. It is sharing a few folders stored on a USB NTFS drive using Netatalk. The client machine is running MacOS 10.6.4. I have only one user on the Ubuntu machine, but the Mac machine has two users. I wish to share the same network share between the two Mac users, while both are logged in (they switch between one another without logging the other one out).
I created a login item on both Mac user accounts to automount the Ubuntu shared folder and used the same Ubuntu user account for authentication on both Mac accounts. This is the problem: When the first Mac user logs in, the shared folder automatically mounts with no problems. However, when the second user switches to their account (without logging out the first user) the automount mounts the folder with a red "No Access" sign on the folder. The only way to resolve it is to eject the mount and manually remount.
This is not the end of the world, but I would like to resolve this issue if possible, so that the users get a smoother experience. The way I tried to resolve this: I thought that maybe Netatalk does not allow the same user to connect more than once from the same IP, so I set up an additional user on the Ubuntu machine. when I connect to the Ubuntu server using the new user for authentication, the only share available for the user is their home folder. The other shares are not available.
I therefore tried to configure permissions using the AppleVolumes.default by explicitly giving all users the "allow" permission for all shares and restarting the Netatalk service, however the new user still has access to nothing but their home folder. How can I share the same shared folder between multiple users?
I have a web application which calls scripts on the linux box it's deployed on. Currently, there are some file permission issues which prevent the scripts from running properly. How can I give my web application the needed permissions? I thought of creating a user 'group' , assigning my web app to that group, and changing the ownership of the script files to the new group. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with the following: What user id does my web app have? If my web app does not have an user id,
a small lab of linux servers contains two servers. the administrator wishes to permit user settings and project files to be available when users log in on any machine descibe the server processes needed on the servers
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 created vsftp server with grop of users and they can access only to /home/ftp-folder file which i made for them..nw if i apply read rite privilages to this folder then these previlages get by users in the group obvious...bt wot i want z if i creat a folder in /home directory i.e /home/test and i want the particular user in the group can have 777 access and other users in the grop coud nt access that folder..
I want to give a mounted folder /mnt/folder access so that 'root and the group test have read write access' and all other users have read access I understand most of the chmod command, the users groups world etc but where in the 'command' do you specify which 'group' or 'user' you are giving the read / write access to? in all the tutorials i've seen no where do you specify the actual group or user.
I need to assign permissions for ftp users. For that I need to create groups with different permissions like upload, download, rename, delete, rename and delete. And the users added to the group need to have that group permissions by default.
I have a laptop with a 250gb drive. It is partitioned in the following way.
Vista 80gb Ubuntu 40gb Data 121 gb (Formatted as NTFS)
And I have a Windows 7 computer I have Samba installed on Ubuntu 9.10 and I can see the Windows7 computer from my Ubuntu laptop. However I can not see my Ubuntu partition or the Data partition over the network. How do I give permission for the Data partition, which is NTFS and the Home partition on Ubuntu?
How can I give an application group permissions?There is a bug in the latest version of Ubuntu's Dovecot, where it is not apart of mail group, so it does not have write permission to the /var/mail directory by default. So I have to give it mail group permissions.
how do i give full permissions to my account? At the moment i'm logged onto root so i can create files / folders in my LAMP folder (/opt/lampp/htdocs) i've right click on the folder and gone to the permissions tab and give the ownership to my account (Kevin) but it still doesnt let me create files or folders? i just want to give my account full permissions to every folder!
can't add the options uid=500,gid=500 to the ext2 volume because it says "bad option" I have 1 question. If you have a volume listed in /etc/fstab, and you try to mount it with different options than the ones listed in fstab, will it mount with the new options, or the fstab options?(e.x. if I try to mount /dev/sda6 with: mount-o auto,user,exec,rw,async. Will it mount with async or sync?)
When I mount an external usb drive on linux (CentOs4), the permissions are by default set to read-only. Since there are multiple users on the computer who need to use the external drive, I want everybody to have rw permission for the entire drive. I also want them to be able to mount the drive if the computer has accidentially been shut down. They can use sudo mount to mount the drive, but this will only give them read permission, and I obviously don't want to allow sudo chmod.
Is there a default setting that I can change so that every new external usb disk automatically gets rw permissions?
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 have recently secured a server by preventing root from logging in via SSH. Now I log in with a non-root account and use 'su' when necessary.However, now I can't do something I used to do, which is open 'sftp://user@ipaddress' in nautilus and be able to edit files as root. Is there anyway to get nautilus to give me root permissions on the server? Or at least end up with root permissions in a GUI text editor on my computer? I don't mind if I have to use bash to start the process, once I can get a GUI for editing files.
Note 1: Yes, I realize I could ssh in and use nano/vi etc, but I'd rather use my graphical text editor. Note 2: The server does not run X, so I can't just forward it.
Write a short script that tells you whether the permissions for two files, whose names are given as arguments to the script, are identical. If the permissions for the two files are identical, output the common permission field. Otherwise, output each filename followed by its permission field
