General :: Give Write Permissions To Multiple Users On A Folder In Ubuntu?


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.

Ubuntu :: Give Read And Write Permissions To Game Folder?
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?

Ubuntu :: Give Multiple Users Access To Drives?
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!

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

General :: Multiple Users To Create Directories Over SFTP So The New Directories Keep The Same Permissions?
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?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Users In Multiple Groups And File 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?):

clamdscan --move=/files/quarantine/ --config-file=/etc/clamd.d/adm.conf /home/user1/file

doing this gives the error:

/home/user1/file: lstat() failed. ERROR

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?

Security :: Setup File Permissions For Multiple Groups/users That Use Windows?
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:

Ubuntu / Apple :: Share The Same Shared Folder Between Multiple Users?
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?

How can I give that user 777 permissions without affecting any other user on the server? I have chroot off, so I can see everything, but the user cannot write.

Do I use chown?

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive - Error "read / Write Permissions" On The Folder Properties
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.
