General :: Root User Using Freshclam Command Cannot Write To Directory?

Jun 27, 2010

When I log on a root and attempt to issue the command Freshclam to upgrade the virus definitions it attempts or create a new file with a definition name. I get a message stating that the directory isnt writable. The user and group access rights are as follows:

USER = read, write, execute
Group = read, write, execute
All= read, execute.

The only way I can get around this is by applying a 777 which would be read, write and execute for all. Now, I have a group define with several user ids in it including Root.How do I connect the group with the directory/file so I dont have to apply a 777 access right to group users could issue the Freshclam command.

General :: Installing As Non-root In A Root Owned Directory

Mar 8, 2011

I have a machine which has only /opt with some decent amount of space where I can install a software. /opt belongs to root:root. The software I want to install cannot be installed as root user.

So lets say I create a directory called /opt/install1 and then chown -R install1 to belong to user1. And now I install the software under /opt/install1 with user as user1.

Is this a best practice violation? There could potentially be just /opt/install1 belong to user1 and in future everything else created under /opt belonging to root..

General :: Use Mkdir Command To Create 'local' Directory In /usr - There Are Error - Cannot Make Directory

Jun 16, 2010

I am a student studying computer science course.

Well, I am facing problem when doing lab questions.

I must use DLXLinux bundled in Bochs (bochs.sourceforge.net).

I am required to use the /usr/local directory.

In /usr directory, there is no directory named 'local' but there is one thing called 'local@'. So, when I try to use mkdir command to create 'local' directory in /usr , there are error "cannot make directory.....".

General :: Find Directory Older Than X And Mv Directory With Sub Files Command?

Jul 13, 2011

I'm quite new to linux but I have configured a simple ftp server and it's working great. I have a FTP-Shared folder with upload and download subfolders. Under upload's and download's I have identical category subfolders like mp3's, movies, software etc. in both. As the guy's upload, I would like to create a line crontab where I can move all the content under /FTP-Shared/upload/mp3/* older than 14 day's to FTP-Shared/downloads/mp3/ recursively (Like in cp command), but the timestamp must be searched on the first directory and not sub files example: /mp3/Club Dance/CD1/Hallo world.mp3This is how far I got:[root@clients ~]# /usr/bin/find /FTP_Shared/upload/Mp3s/ -depth -mindepth 1 -mtime +14 -type d -exec mv -f {} /FTP_Shared/download/Mp3s/ ;This command moves the directory and files, but it is not recursively

Security :: Root Password Cannot Be Changed

Jan 20, 2011

Protect against root password change[Log in to get rid of this advertisement]I have recently had to force a change of the root password on a linux box I was running. It was a test system which I had not used in a while, so I forgot the root password (not so smart).Anyway, I found that it was amazingly easy to reset the root password. Here is a straight forward article on how to do it.URL...

My question is: how can you protect against this? I see this as a security hole.I understand that the user must have physical access to the computer, but if I want to lock the system down so you cannot easily enter single user mode or the root password cannot be changed.

General :: How Does Kernel Know The Root Directory

Mar 26, 2010

how the kernel knows the root directory. For example, in grub menu.lst file we specify root=/dev/hda1. This tells the kernel to find mount the root directory from /dev/hda1. But to read /dev/had1 it should first know where is '/' . I couldn't understand how this is being done.

General :: Change The Root Directory For A User?

Oct 5, 2010

For a user on a Linux host, I need to make everything inaccessible besides his home directory. I have heard that this is usually done by changing the root directory for the user (and setting it to the user's home directory), however I couldn't find the way to do it.

I thought about the chroot command, but it seems it just runs the specified command, considering the specified directory as the root directory. So it seems chroot is not what i need. So my question is: what is the command which changes the user's root directory?

Ubuntu :: Recursively Changed Permissions In Home Directory

May 23, 2010

I did a clean install from Ubuntu 09.04 to 10.04 and restored my files from tar.
Everything worked fine until I tried my weekly rsync backup.
The permissions seemed to be causing problems, so I recursively changed all the permissions in my home directory:

Code:
~/Documents$ sudo chmod -R 644 /home/wolf/
[sudo] password for wolf:
chmod: cannot access '/home/wolf/.gvfs': Permission denied
So now all the directories and files have read permission for everyone:

Code:
~/Documents$ ls -A
ls: cannot open directory .: Permission denied
~/Documents$ sudo ls -lA
[sudo] password for wolf:
total 80
drw-r--r-- 2 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-22 20:45 career
drw-r--r-- 23 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-02 17:17 computer_languages
drw-r--r-- 2 wolf wolf 4096 2009-08-09 23:29 .ecryptfs
drw-r--r-- 21 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-02 17:23 misc
-rw-r--r-- 1 wolf wolf 27298 2010-05-23 13:01 next.odt
drw-r--r-- 3 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-23 15:46 PC_maintenance
drw-r--r-- 5 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-08 01:43 software_projects
Now I can't even look at my own directory:

Code:
/home$ cd /home/
/home$ ls -lA
total 20
drwx------ 2 root root 16384 2010-05-07 01:01 lost+found
drw-r--r-- 42 wolf wolf 4096 2010-05-23 15:35 wolf
/home$ cd /home/wolf
bash: cd: /home/wolf: Permission denied
/home$ sudo cd /home/wolf
[sudo] password for wolf:
sudo: cd: command not found

General :: Secure FTP Of A File To The Root Directory On CentOS?

Nov 2, 2010

I am running WHM and CPANEL on centos.I would like to upload a file to the root user directory. To be honest, my only experience uploading and downloading files with FTP has been with domain related accounts that were set up under WHM to be managed under CPANEL. This is quite simple, because all you do is set FileZilla or Dreamweaver up with the FTP address of the domain account and the username and password.How can I do something similar to FTP a file into the root or home directory?

Ubuntu :: Root User Directory Does Not Exist, Root Password Not Recognised?

Oct 26, 2010

I no longer have access to my root desktop. On a session I attempted to change the root username but i apparently assigned it a wrong directory that does not exist. When I rebooted with my new root username, i was instead recognised as a simple user (no root privileges). I tried the console to change to "old" root but root password is not accepted and there is no way to access to sudoer files. it seems that inserting a new username requires root privileges and i am back to square one. Simply logging with old root username and password after restart gives me a blank screen with nothing on it and cannot even reboot.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Cannot Install Updates - Root User Changed

Apr 16, 2010

Ubunto 8.4, running on 2nd partition on Apple Intel iMac. Several months ago, following a routine update, I found I could no longer install routine updates. Investigating further, I find
"You don't have permissions to..."
then sudo: /etc/sudoers is owned by gid 1002, should be 0.
That's not me! I am the owner and root user of this computer. How could this get changed? How can I change it back to me? The Linux platform of the computer has not been exposed to the net except for Ubuntu forums and updates. No one else has used this computer.
