General :: Unable To "read" Files In Either Directory?

Jun 1, 2010

Is it possible / how can I? I have two directories "money" and "assets". I have two users, "jonn" and "jean". I "need" john and jean to share a login called "post". I want John and Jean to use this "post" login to be able to write a file to folders called "money" and "assets". I don't want them to be able to "read" files in either directory. I tried chmod 400 and that didn't work. They couldn't write a file to the directory.

What permissions can I give / assign so that they can write a file but they can't read any other files? Remember, there are different directories that they will "write" the files to.

No doubt you can change file and directory permissions on files such that when you upload a file via ftp, it uploads fine but isn't visible to the uploader.

Fedora :: Cannot Read Hidden Files In Home Directory

Jul 24, 2009

Not sure what the problem is, but my home directory or /home partition is acting up so that I cannot see the hidden directories in my home directory.

If I type "ls" I get the display of all my files and directories.

If I type "ls -l" I get the display of files and directories.

If I type "ls -a" or "ls -la", the terminal hangs.

Any thoughts? I have tried creating myself a new account and moved all my files over, then changed the ownerships to the new account. However, now the new account is acting the same way.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Read-only Files?

Aug 21, 2010

I'm trying to delete files on a USB disk. If I try using terminal using rm, because files are write only. I can't change this, even as root using chmod or unmount mount. When I use fdisk I still can't reformat, either as superuser or root. I get the following :

Disk /dev/sdh: 16.1 GB, 16064184320 bytes
7 heads, 37 sectors/track, 121140 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 259 * 512 = 132608 bytes

Ubuntu :: Ext USB NTFS Disk Unable To Read Files Created Under 10.10

Feb 9, 2011

Using Ubuntu 10.10 (installed via mythbuntu) I'm unable to read or see files/directories created under Ubuntu. I think it started happening after a reboot to Windows. Some of the directories created under Ubuntu have disappeared completely and some of them produce the following error:
/media/storage/videos/Kids Videos$ ls
ls: cannot access Justin Bieber: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Octonauts: Input/output error
rest of directory is seen fine...

Same on some files:
ls -l
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.mp4: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.nfo: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Input/output error
ls: cannot access Dirk Gently.tbn: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Human Planet: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Russell Howard's Good News: Input/output error
ls: cannot access The Planets: Input/output error
ls: cannot access Lost Land of the Tiger: Input/output error
total 300160 .....

Just to make it worse I copied more data onto the disk from windows so may have lost some it completely. It there anyway I can repair this? When trying to check under Windows it says it can't. Some of the missing files can be reloaded but others can't. Ran chkdsk /f under Windows XP. Some files have reappeared, but there has been a lot of unrecoverable files lost. Conclusion: Ubuntu 10.10 is badly broken for writing to NTFS. As I would like to share between Windows & Ubuntu using the external disk, I'm not sure what to do at this stage.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba - Access The Shares But Read-only And Unable To Delete / Modify Files Using The IMacs

Sep 2, 2010

I have a few ubuntu servers which have samba shares on the network and for the most part have had little trouble with them. Recently we purchased a few iMac's for one of our deptartments and, while we're able to access the shares, all the files on them are read-only and we are unable to delete/modify files using the iMacs. This is not an issue with any of our windows machines (W2K, WinXP, Vista).

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

General :: Permissions So Directory Can Only Be Read By Script Not Browser?

Jan 20, 2009

I have a CMS that has a brilliant backup option with one flaw, it can only create a full backup in a directory inside the web root. In this case /var/www/site/backups. This is not practical for security as the resulting tar.gz file contains a full mysql backup as well as other items that the general public shouldn't be downloading.What permissions do I need to set so that the directory /var/www/site/backups cannot be browsed to in a browser but can be read / written by the CMS when a PHP script calls it?

SUSE :: Mount NFS Directory As Read-only Except For 1 Sub-directory?

Jul 14, 2009

We currently have a NFS shared Directory mounted as read-only on our server.This directory contains multiple sub-directories and files. It being read-only is a equirement. Now, we need a directory underneath to be read-write. Is there a graceful way to make that happen? Like a special mount option to use? Basically objective is: /u01 is mounted as read-only and has 3 directories: dir1, dir2, dir3 dir3 has 2 sub-directories- sub1,sub2/u01/dir3/sub2 needs to be read-write, while all other are read-only.
