General :: Group Permissions Getting Overwritten By Owner?

Apr 9, 2010

A colleague of mine has a Linux box (running Debian I believe) with an SVN repository on it. The repository directory and files 'owner' is my colleauge. We are both members of a group called 'users'. He manages several projects both Linux and Windows apps, while I have one Windows app. For the Windows apps, we both use TortoiseSVN via an SSH link to commit/update. Performing the command 'ls -l' shows the repository files and folders on the Linux box to have the following permissions:

-rwxrwx--- john users

However, when my colleauge commits to the repository, the permissions change to:

-rwxrwx--- john john

This then means I get 'Permission denied' when trying to access the repository myself as it appears that the group permissions have been overwritten with only 'owner' permissions. To fix this, a 'chown -R' command is applied to the files/folders to set the permissions back to owner/group, but each time he writes to the repository, the issue repeats.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVD Won't Play -- Permissions/owner/group?

Oct 28, 2010

Did a fresh install of Maverick, all is well but if I insert a video DVD, it won't play. But if I open Movie Player, etc. as root, I can play the individual chapters - that is I need to manually choose which chapter to play, it won't start at the beginning and play to the end. Have installed libdvdcss3, restricted extras, etc. I am a member of the "video" group.Data & music CD's work fine in the drive; data DVD's are fine also. Just no DVD playing with me as the user; nor does the DVD appear in my Places menu, etc

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Not Change Owner And Group Permissions On User Uploads

Jul 17, 2011

In my /var/www directory, I have everything set up with:
user: www-data
group: developers
directories: chmod 570
files: chmod 460

Everything seems fine. Users from the developers group can edit files and all, but now we began using the Git repository, and whenever a user edits a file (ie. Joe who is a developer,) file permissions get screwed again. Now they're:
user: Joe
group: Joe
directories: chmod 755
files: chmod 644
How can I fix this so permissions remain the same?

General :: Cvs Import File Group Owner ?

Jun 11, 2010

This is about ubuntu 10.04

I can import projects to my cvs repository only when the repository set to group owner cvs. Which is fine to me.

But I found the project folder/files that I imported into the repository have group name other than cvs (in fact, that's my username). And that prevents others to check out my code.

General :: Default Group Owner Of Files In A Directory?

Sep 10, 2010

have recently installed ubuntu server on a new machine. I have added 3 users and I have assigned them to a group.The three of us work together on a lot of stuff so what I would like to do is to have a specific folder made the groups folder. All files that are created or moved into this folder should automatically be owned by the group. I.e. all 3 of us should have the right to read and write to these files.

General :: Permissions - Would Map The Owner Id Of Files Coming From Other Computers To The Account Name In /etc/passwd?

Feb 8, 2010

When I use ls -al to show files downloaded from internet,

-rw-rw-r-- 1 427 6011 7544 Jul 20 2006 INSTALL
-rw-rw-r-- 1 427 6011 4229 Dec 9 15:36 Makefile.am
-rw-rw-r-- 1 427 6011 27893 Dec 10 17:47 Makefile.in

I can see the owner and group ids are shown because there are no corresponding entries in /etc/passwd and /etc/group respectively. I don't know much about linux and dare not to edit these files, I wonder if somebody already knows whether linux would map the owner id of files coming from other computers to the account name in /etc/passwd and display them when necessary (for example, when using ls -al)?

Ubuntu :: Edit Owner / Group Via SSH With GUI?

Feb 14, 2011

In Windows I used WinSCP to do all of my server work. It was easy and intuitive to use. In Ubuntu, I've been recommended to use "sftp://" for the location. I can change folder permission settings this way, but it doesn't allow me to change the owner and group, and doesn't allow to change the file permissions (folder permissions are ok though).

Can anyone point me in the right direction? How do I go about doing this? I'm much more comfortable doing it via GUI rather than terminal.

Ubuntu :: 9.1 - MySQL Listed As Group / Owner In Directory

Mar 23, 2010

I use 9.10 desktop with a root user and my own user (timmo), I did not create anything else. Now I check a directory (mysql databases) with ls -l and I see mysql not only as a group but also as owner. How can mysql, not being a user on my system, be an owner? In users and groups I see that all of the many groups only have two members, root and timmo. I know that mysql users and linux users are different animals but ls -l is definitely a linux command.

Networking :: NFS Files On Client Have Different Owner/group Than On Server?

Feb 4, 2011

The server is named alpha and is running Archlinux. It is exporting a directory named /files. The server is a couple of years old and I have accessed it extensively from clients running Arch, Suse, PCLinuxOS, and maybe some others, all with no problems. The clients (3 of them) are new installations of Linux Mint 10 (Julia). When I mount the nfs all of the nfs files are visible as expected. However, the owner/group is drastically different than on the server.

I might add that I have set up user id's and group id's the same. My user is 1003 on all systems, and the users group is 100 on all systems. When I am on alpha (via ssh), here is a partial file listing.

Code:
[dick@alpha dick]$ ls -l
total 9740
drwxr-xr-x 3 dick users 4096 May 16 2009 airplane
-rw-rw-r-- 1 dick users 240978 Jun 27 2009 Alice Grad 1934.pdf
-rwxr-xr-x 1 dick users 444 Jul 8 2007 alpha2ast
-rw-r--r-- 1 dick users 444 Sep 2 2009 alpha2charlie

[Code]...

If have searched the Mint forums, LQ forums, and google in general. I must be missing something in my search because I can't believe that no one else has this same problem and I am having it on 3 different boxes.

Ubuntu :: Put A Line In /etc/fstab To Mount One Of Partitions With Owner And Group Not Root

Jan 9, 2010

According to a couple of different places, it's not possible for me to put a line in /etc/fstab to mount one of my partitions with owner and group not root; instead, I have to mount it in /etc/fstab, then chown & chgrp to my user. That seems ridiculously tedious and silly... is it true? I'm sure a short script could be written to get around it, but it seems obtuse for Linux not to allow that to be set in /etc/fstab.

Software :: Permissions: Have Files Always Have The Same Owner/mod?

Oct 8, 2010

I have a disk that I access from several locations. I require that all the files created always have the same owner, at least group wise. I have different users (that are in that group) that need to be able to read/write all these files. I have these users access the files over samba, and sometimes locally on the server. I know that you can do something with a thing called sticky group or whatever, that files created in a dir with that flag will get the same group, but it has not worked consistently so far. It must also work for directories created by these users.The permissions should be 770 (chmod).Is there a way to set this up, that all files created always have the same group? Right now I am running a cron job every hour or so, to chmod and chown all the files to the right group, but this is far from elegant of course

General :: Group Permissions On File Or Share

Oct 17, 2009

I'm studying Linux and just started reading about permissions and ownership. My question is how would you have multiple users or groups given access to a certain directory? When doing an ls -l I see the owner, group and others that have permissions that have access to the file or directory. But what if I need multiple different groups access to a particular file or directory all with different permissions?

Ubuntu :: Localhost Folder - No Owner Permissions

Jul 27, 2010

I have installed apache2, mysql, php .. they work great! but I can move, change, paste or anything in the folder sites_available (the folder for localhost) I am really confused right now! because I have used this with xampp in XP and it worked perfectly but I cant make it work in ubuntu! I cant test my php sites!

I am really noob about configuring linux! I think I don't have permission to do anything in that folder because when I try to paste my site there it show a error saying that I am not the owner! When I installed ubuntu first I created a username: "SHPETIM" and this username is administrator and has root permissions but sometimes there are somethings that I cant do!

Sometimes even in Terminal when I type in my password (the only password that I created when I installed ubuntu) it says FAILURE! I dont know what other password it may have that I don't know! I think there is a user with username ROOT and it has another password but since I am noob I dont understand this and I dont know how it works!

Ubuntu :: Editing Permissions Not Allowed Because Not The Owner?

I am just wondering why this is happening. I just tried to use a tutorial to customize my GUI and give myself a custom launcher for Libre Office, and when I tried to copy the edited .desktop file back into my "/adam/usr/shared/applications" folder, it told me I didn't have permission to do this. I tried to edit the folder permissions and it told me that I was not able to because I am not the owner. Is there any way to fix this or do I have to re-install Ubuntu?

General :: Understanding Ubuntu User / Group Permissions

May 20, 2010

I'm beginning to deal with more than one user on my system (it's a VPS serving some sites) and I need to make sure I understand how group permissions work. I have an account named "admin" .. it's basically the primary account that is used for serving most of the sites that I control myself. Now, I added a second account named "Ville" as one of my users wants to be able to administer that site. So, I can do this the easy way and just chown their domains folder under the ville user, they have permission to do whatever they need be and so forth. However, let's say I want to also give the admin user access to the files (modifying and all) .. how can I put both users into the same group and give them both permission?

I've tried doing:
sudo usermod -a -G admin ville
To add the ville into the admin group, but ville still cannot edit files by admin. Permissions for the primary directory for the ville user are read/write for both owner and group, and the current group for the files is admin:admin ..
But ville still can't write into the directory. So, what should I be doing here to get this right and secure at the same time?

General :: Setting Up Group Permissions For A Mounted Share?

Jul 6, 2010

Sorry if this is the wrong section for this type of question. Anyway, I have two servers running Ubuntu 10.04. Server A has an NFS share that is mounted on server B, and the former has this share set up with specific permissions for a group called netusers. This group basically grants its users read/write permissions, and blocking all of files from anyone who's not part of the group.My question is this: how can I set up the permissions on server B, such that if I was to add a new user on server B, he would have read/write access to the share? I tried adding a counterpart group called netusers with the same permissions on B, but that didn't work.
