General :: Give Directory Permission To A Group And Not Specific User?
May 26, 2010
I'm trying to do something like thisi created a group called www and made this group the owner of the directory/var/www/htmlso i can read and write to it.of course I've add my self to this group, but it seems i can't read and write.the syntax i used was something like chown :www /var/www/html.didn't workonly when i used chown samurai:www /var/www/html i could finally could create new file.the reason i don't want to specify the user name is because I'm thinking of a scenario when i need to give permission to a large group of ppl and don't want to do it user by user.
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 have a program(that is written by me) which need super user permission to execute it. But I need to let the normal users to execute it without using 'sudo ./executable' and just './executable'. how i can set the program to execute by the normal users without using 'sudo' or password prompting.
I'm developing an application in which one user must run java software that I'm compiling as another user. I wanted to give user A permission to see the bin direcory of my workspace, which is in the home directory of user B. I was wondering how can this be done? I gave the bin direcotry full read/execute premissions, but since it's in my home directory user A can't navigate to it.
I know there are a few ways I could get around the problem but they arn't very elegant. I was wondering if there is a simple method for giving a user access to a specific directory without giving access to all the parent directories. I tried symbolic link but user A still can't access it, and a hard link to a directory isn't allowed in Linux. I don't feel like making a hard link to every single file in the bin directory, and I'm not sure that would work anyways, since every recompile overwrites them.
i want to set permission type "write" on a file to a particular user in a group of users ( not all users in that group). chown is changing a user to root , but i want to set say permission of "write" only to a user 1 in group staff which contains 10 users 1 , user 2 ...user 10.
How do I give permission to a logged in user to stop/start a specific service without entering a root/sudo password? So they can do a simple "service SomeService stop|start" It is for a headless Ubuntu server.
I have two machines between which I need to share a folder.On server1, I have the user 'appuser' that needs to access (read/write/delete) on this share.On server2, 'root' accesses this share and writes to it.I have the following in /etc/exports on server1:/home/app-share 999.999.99.99/28(rw,insecure,sync,no_root_squash)where the number is the IP address. How can I change this to allow 'appuser' access?
I need to configure software as debian image to work on server. I need to create user who is not root, but being able to change IP (I don't know if administrators who will install my image need to give static IP to it, so I want to create special user role for them being able to change IP but not able to see some restricted folders in the image).
I have a log server that collects logs from all the cisco devices on our network.he company policy states that any logs should only be accessible by root. So I have the following permissions set on the directory, as well as everything inside the directory where the cisco logs are kept.
Code: drwx------ 65 root root 4096 Apr 29 7:38 rsyslog The cisco folks are requesting access to these logs, which is allowed by company policy.
On Opensuse 11.3,a normal user could not access and modify files in other partitions as the default setting .Is there any way to give a permission to a normal user to do these things instead of do these as a root user?
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'm having an odd problem (although I'm probably missing something obvious to a non-semi-newbie):I have a directory used for samba shares which is owned by user fred, a system user which the windows clients on my network authenticate with to access the shares. I, roger, want to access the directories without having to put my 'sudo boots' on every time, so I made the directory group users and added roger to that group, and changed the file/folder modes from 0755 to 0775.However I still do not have write permissions inside the directory; I still seem to be considered 'other' and hence only have read and execute.
created a user but i forgot to change the home directory permission.so after user created when i go to the user and group mangement i cant see that permission filed related to the home permission directory.my purpose is to stop accessing other user to my home directory,how it can be possible??
Is it possible to give user only FTP access / browsing rights for certain directory within /srv/www/htdocs and prevent same user to browse all other directories, even user's /home directory on that server?
We have a ftp server. Red Hat Linux release 9 (Shrike) working on the this server.Ftp server running very good. But I want to give 2 folder permission an user. Is this ssible?Example,We have a user that name is aslan. I want to connect this user to www/html/company/adek folder with ftp connection. Then I am changing this user home folder in the /etc/passwd as aslan:x:511:511::www/html/company/adek:/bin/bash.This user doing succesfuly ftp connection to this folder with a ftp program as Filezilla.Now, I want to also give a different folder connection this user as www/html/company/meleka.Is This user can be connect this 2 folder with ftp connection? Is this possible? Can i give 2 or any more folder connection at the one user account?
I'm working in Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop with Apache installed. I have a directory /var/www/test:drwxrwxr-x 5 root www-data 4096 2010-01-04 13:51 test And I've added myself as a member of the group www-data. Problem though is when i go into /var/www/test I still can't do anything, whether it's creating a new file or directory or editing files there. The files within the directory are also 775 and setup under group www-data.
I have a secondary disk which holds a /home directory structure from a previous install of Linux. I installed a new version on a new primary drive and mounted this secondary drive as the new /home. Problem is, even though the users are the same names and I can access the home directories for the users, I cannot login directly to their home directories, as I get the following error: -
login as: [me] [me]@[machine]'s password: Last login: Wed Jan 6 18:34:33 2010 from [machine] Could not chdir to home directory /home/[me]: Permission denied [[me]@[machine] /]$
Now, since the usernames are correct and the users are in the passwd file with the correct home directory paths, could it be user ID's that are different or something else? It's not as though I cannot access the home directories for the users, simply that I cannot log directly into them from a login prompt.
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 have a real system user say 'test', created in a number of system groups, up to 3 additional groups (including ftp of course). Its set to the usual standard directory /home/test. But what if I wanted to use /home/test as their home directory but login to what would be unknown to them to be ProFTP to make them go in say [URL] or something random like that, how is this done? Just been through things like this:
I recently started using SVN with Apache for my web development, although I find it really annoying that I have to issue two SVN commands (one local, one remote) to update my web site. I have been looking into SVN post-commit hooks to solve this problem. The only problem is that apache does not have permission to modify files in my user directory... So here is how everything is setup. I am running Slackware 13 full install. There have been no installations overriding any of the default installs.
How would i write a command that can find all the objects under the etc directory that have group write permission enabled and have not been accessed in the last X days. This is what i got from internet souce but i m not able to modify it according to my distribution. find /etc -perm -0070 -a -mtime +X ! -type l?print Here is the exact statement from link i m referring to.
