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?

Server :: NFS With Directories Permissions?

Oct 4, 2010

I'm planning a NFS share for a small enterprise (25 NFS clients). I need to create a directory structure but I'll need to set up differents permissions (rw/ro) to some directories of the tree. I wonder if it's possible to grant access using groups IDs, so that would be ideal for this application. Is it possible? I was thinking that I would kneed some kind of centralized user info, such as NIS or LDAP. Is that necessary?

Fedora :: Edit The Permissions For Directories In 12?

Mar 22, 2010

I tried using Nautilus - nada (under root no less). Tried using file browser (nada again) Tried going to "places" and the directory I wanted - right click, permissions won't let me change squat. The folders I want to change are shared folders on my network at home and sometimes I transfer files between computers to different places. Can't do it tho, cuz of the permissions. Is CHMOD the answer? If so, how do I do it? For instance, In terminal, I issued the command (as root) chmod 777 movies I thought this would allow any device in the house to write to this directory, but the permissions didn't change at all. So what do I have to do?

On my Ubuntu machine I simply run Nautilus as root and it allows me to do this.
So what's different in Fedora?

Ubuntu :: Rsync Creating Wrong Permissions For Directories?

May 1, 2010

I try to use rsync for backing up some directories and I have to following problem: some files have permissions that prevent me from running rsync under my own user id. So I run it under root using the option "-a" which according to the man page should preserve the permissions, owner and group information:

However, when I run this under root, the directories created in the backup location get user root and group root while ordinary files keep the original user and group. What am I missing here? How can I get rsync to preserve the user and groups for all files, including directories?

Here is a command to illustrate my problem
sudo rsync -a /home/youruser /tmp

If you try that and terminate with Ctrl-C after a few seconds, there will be a directory /tmp/youruser where the directories contained within are owned by root group root.

Ubuntu :: Photorec Rovered File Directories Permissions?

May 4, 2010

I recently accidentally deleted a wrong directory of images from a USB memory stick, which I managed to successfully recover using Photorec . Photorec created a couple of directories (which I asked it to put in Documents), which i was then able to re copy back onto the USB disc. My problem now however is that I do not need that almost 4GB of files on my PC but I cannot delete them since the files are all root owner, and being somewhat new to ubuntu I am not sure of how to go about changing the permissions and deleting these files.

I am running Ubuntu 9.04, and wish to share a folder to be accessed without logging in via Windows Vista. If I set up the share through the nautilus right-click menu and enable "Guest Account", the share is inaccessible. The folder shows up, but it fails to mount.

General :: Change Permissions Of Rc.sysinit In Run Level 1?

While playing with my Linux box, I edited rc.sysinit in /etc/rc.d/ folder. But now when I boot into run level 3 or 5, I get complain that system cannot run /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit. I boot into run level 1, and checked its permissions, which is rw-r--r-- . It should be rwxr-xr-x. I tried to use chmod to change its permissions, but it responded that "Read Only file system" Now how can I change its persmissions when in run level 1. In run level 3 and 5, machine does not boot. My box has Fedora Core 2 with kernel 2.6.20.

Ubuntu Security :: Restricting 'cd' Access To Directories Without Adjusting Permissions

Apr 13, 2010

Is there a way to restrict users that are logged into the shell via SSH/Telnet/SFTP from using the 'cd' command to move into certain directories, yet not use the chmod command to do it? For instance, restrict users logged in from accessing the /var/www/ folder but have it still accessible using a web browser. Also, would this defeat the purpose since they could just wget from it if its still web accessible through a browser?

Ubuntu :: Set Default File Permissions For Newly Created Directories?

Nov 18, 2010

I'm just wondering: I know that umask sets the default file permissions for files, however I want to know if there is anyway to set default file permissions for newly created directories.

For example, I want my user to create new directories that anyone can access and modify (777) but I want the new files the user creates to be 755 (read by everyone, written only by user).

Is this possible?

any way to change file permissions of NTFS drives? All my C programming files resides in a NTFS drive and I need to set execute permision on them in order to run. I tired chmod -Rv 777 /media/Programming. and also tired chmod 775 *.* after entering the folder in which all my files resides. but both these commands doesn't seem to have any effect on the files. I know NTFS doesn't use Unix file system and chmod command goes in vain.

General :: Change Permissions And Ownership For NTFS Mounts?

Apr 19, 2011

I finally replaced my Windows with Linux.. However, I need to run applications and modify files that are on NTFS mounts. I am unable to change ownership, permissions, and groups on these files so I may modify them without having to copy. I have several times attempted to chmod, chgrp, chown, etc.. while logged-in as root user; however it is to no avail. The owner and permissions are still geared towards root. can I change ownership and permissions on NTFS files so I can modify them without having to convert/copy them over to ext4 or different file system?- Matbtw: I am using OpenSuse 11.4 and running Windows apps with VirtualBox (with Vista installation image). I still have Win7 on my computer (non-emulated) and I would like to keep some files on those NTFS partitions so when I occasionally need to boot into Win7 I can modify those files because Windows blows and doesn't support Linux.

General :: Unable To Change File Permissions To Execute

Jun 16, 2010

I've checked out a subversion project with source c++ files in netbeans 6.8 on Red Hat 5.5. My machine has a dual boot with windows xp and RHEL 5.5 so I checked out the project on a folder called winshare which is a shared drive/partition (E: under xp) allowing both operating systems to access the contents. I've Fedora as virtual machine on xp and wanted to be able to work on the source seamlessly whether using fedora or RHEL.

Problem is that Netbeans is able to build the source just fine but I can't seem to run the generated executable. It has -rw-rw---- permission and the owner is the same user logged in (let's say user1) but no matter what I do, whether I change permissions as user1 or root issuing command chmod 777 -R /dir/where/file/is does not have any effect whatsoever on the executable as well as any .cpp or .h files (nothing that I need exectue permissions on .cpp but just to make a point).
