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

May 15, 2011

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?

I'm a refugee from WindowsXP, running Fedora 14 with three user accountsMy problem is that I need the primary user (userd 500) to be able to have full access all other users' files in their home directories so that user can copy, move, delete, etc.I tried making that user a member of the other users' groups - but I still get the 'not got permission' error when I try to access their home directories

Software :: .htaccess - Allow Users To Write Access To Files Or Complete Directories

Apr 23, 2011

I have a site hosted with a cheap hosting company and limited control of the site. I need to allow some other users all over the world to have write access to files or complete directories and I have no idea how to do that. Initially I thought I could use "chown" somehow but it looks like it's a no-go with ftp and others. By default, there is a .htaccess file and a .htpasswd file in the root directory of the site and the hosting company suggested to use .htaccess file with something like below:

[Code]....

and put it in a .htaccess file in the directory of user1 but the server does not like something since I inserted that file. Is it an error in the script or is there more to it than that? Can someone point me to a suitable tutorial or explain what to do?

Mar 31, 2011

I don't quite understand /etc/skel. I know that everything in /etc/skel will effect all NEW users, and that's about it.

Basically, what I'm trying to do is add the directories "home" and "work" to the users /home directory.

How do I do this?

General ::anything Special About Home Directory Before Users' Home Directories Are Stored There

Jun 19, 2010

Is there anything special about a home directory before users' home directories are stored there, or is just as typical as any other "empty" folder?Let me just cut to the chase, but please no ear ringing about the folly of messing around as root, particularly with directories at root level. I know it's considered stupidity, but I deleted my home directory.

Is there an easy way to restore a working home directory? I tried copying /etc/skel under root, but I'm not sure what a home directory should look like once it has been restored. Besides . & .., there were .screenrc & .xsession in my home directory when I copied /etc/skel. Are these files suppose to be in "/home" or "/home/~" or both?

CentOS 5 :: Mapping Directories To Users?

May 6, 2009

Problem: I need to map directories to a user's home directory when they log in.

For example, I need to map /school/homework/ to user "steve" in his home directory when he logs in. I'm guessing I could use a logon script, but I can't figure out what command I should be putting in the script. I've been searching for hours through man pages and googled it a ton and can't find anything on it.

General :: LDAP Access Control For Users ?

Feb 16, 2010

I'm using Sun One LDAP server, (Soon to be moving to openldap). I have one Master server, no slaves, about 60 user accounts.

I'd like to add an attribute to each of the users DN's to restrict there ability to login to specific hostnames. I.e. I have hosts A, B and C. Dev staff can access A and B, but not C, and support staff need to access all of them.

I found a link at [url] which talked about using 'hostsallowedlogin' and 'hostsdeniedlogin' attributes but I'm presuming these are bespoke. If they are, how do you configure the ldap.conf to take note of these attributes when authorizing access?

Ubuntu Servers :: Placing Quota/cap On Users' /home Directories?

Jul 28, 2010

I have my home server setup, running 10.04 x64. The OS is installed on a 300GB WD Blue drive, and I have a RAID5 array md0, consisting of 4x 2TB WD Green drives, mounted as /home. I am sharing the home directories using samba and using them to back-up the other computers in the house. I have created a user account+password for each computer, giving it its own "/home/computername_backup/" directory to store it's backups in.

Computers being backed-up:(750GB) Gaming PC running Win7 Ultimate x64
(30GB + 2TB) HTPC running Win7 Home Premium x64
(32GB) Netbook running Win7 Home Premium x32
(250GB) 2 Macbook Pros Running OS X 10.6.4 (tweaked to allow time machine to recognize the samba share as a time machine volume

Question: 5.37TB of /home seems good for now, and I haven't run into any problems so far, but I don't want to have to keep checking. I'd like to put a size cap on each user's home, to prevent one of the computers from gobbling up all the space. Is there an easy (or hard) way to configure this type of thing? My Macbook, for example, only has a 250GB HD. I could give it 3-400GB of space for its home and that would be plenty - whenever it filled its /home/, it would start erasing the oldest backups. If there is no size limit, I believe it will just continue to grow until all the free space is gone.

Considerations: Right now, the HTPC is storing all its media locally (on the installed 2TB drive). However, I've already used 3/4 of the space and the HPTC enclosure can only hold one drive. My plan moving forward is to have /home be used to store media files (iTunes music for all computers and tv/movies for the HTPC), which is another reason I'd like to ensure that the backups don't take up all the space.

I realize I could create a partition for each computer, but I'd prefer not to go down this route. This would seem an untenable tactic if I added another computer next month, or if I realized that the partition was too small.

Programming :: Script To Search Users Home Directories For Certain Words?

Feb 20, 2011

I am trying to create a bash script that will search all users home directories on a system for words like quit, steal, kill etc. Pretty sure I'm going to be using grep /home. The only thing is that obviously a word like 'kill' could have normal uses too like "I need to kill the process." How would I go about flagging a user with the word/phrase found, and the path while also omitting legitimate uses?

Server :: Setup Vsftpd With AD Users Without Home Directories Created?

Jul 3, 2009

I'm testing a Debian Lenny virtual machine to simulate my ideal setup for FTP server (with vsftpd): I want all internal users (corporation users with Active Directory accounts) to ftp into the same directory (i.e. /var/FTP/AD-DOMAIN/) and external users (customers) to ftp into their home directories (created manually on request).

I added user_config_dir=/etc/vsftpd_user_conf option in /etc/vsftpd.conf file and I've created /etc/vsftpd_user_conf/domain-user1 with local_root=/var/FTP/AD-DOMAIN

I have setup vsftp so I can ftp with every external and internal user chrooted and is working properly. AD validation for internal users and "normal" validation (via /etc/passwd) for external users work perfect.

I can FTP this server into /var/FTP/AD-DOMAIN with any AD user with its home directory created (i.e. /home/AD-DOMAIN/domain-user1/) but if I try to ftp with any AD user without its home directory created I get the error "500 OOPS: cannot change directory:/home/AD-DOMAIN/domain-user2"

I have found some references (http://wiki.flexion.org/FtpServer.html and http://howto.gumph.org/content/setup...ies-in-vsftpd/) about vsftp PAM authentication so I would supposedly get rid of the error message and the user would log into /var/FTP/AD-DOMAIN without problems, but I can't figure out how to setup my FTP server.

General :: Users Cannot Connect To The FTP Unless Their Shell Access Is /bin/bash

Here is an example line that is outputted when I use this command:

This user can access the FTP fine, but he can also access SSH which I don't want to allow him to do. If I set his shell access to /bin/false then he can't connect to the FTP.

What can I use in instead of /bin/bash to allow FTP but don't allow SSH?
