I set up a samba server on my Linux box for the purpose of allowing everyone - and I mean everyone - on my LAN network to be able to put files to one folder... The only issue seems to be not having write permissions to the target folder.
Question, re-stated: How do I set the permissions for an entire directory to not require anyone to have a login? I have tried many things, such as "chown -aR /data/public", but I still cannot seem to find the magic words.
I have a vsftpd server configured and I cannot upload using anonymous account, I've trawled the net have have exhausted my search for answers. Here is my vsftpd.conf file
Code: # Example config file /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf # # The default compiled in settings are fairly paranoid. This sample file # loosens things up a bit, to make the ftp daemon more usable. # Please see vsftpd.conf.5 for all compiled in defaults.
I have a few FTP users on my linux server(running vsftpd). They all have their own directory and can upload and delete files in that folder.Now, I was wondering whether it would be possible to create special permissions/rights for users. For example, I would like to make it so that certain users could not upload .exe files, or I want a certain user to only be able to upload image files (gif, jpg).
Inspite of having 755 permissions on the chown command, it seems the command can be executed by the root only. I was under the impression that the 'x' permission for 'others' can give executable rights to the normal user too, which does not seem to be the case here. Just curious to know, if not the file perms itself, what controls the execution of the command?
I've got that vsftpd running on a ubuntu 9.10 machine. Although I cannot upload any file, I always get a "550: Permission denied"-error.

I've been trying to set up an FTP server for a client, which is something I haven't done before. Things seemed pretty straight forward at first, had everything working, but now I have just one last minor problem.
I'm using vsftpd as my FTP daemon. I managed to configure it to allow only user to log in, I have write enabled, etc. Now, this server is in the 172.16.10.* range. I have servers in two other ranges that need to connect to it and down-/upload files. These ranges are 192.168.15.* and 192.168.16.*. The ones in 192.168.15.* are physically in the same location as my FTP server. The ones on 192.168.16.* connect through a VPN, using a Netscreen 5GT firewall.
Up to this, no problem yet. The problem is this:
I tried the following from the 192.168.15.* range:
- connect: no problem - login: no problem - list directory: no problem - download file: no problem - upload file: no problem
Now I tried all of this from the 192.168.16.* range as well. Everything checked out except for one tiny crucial thing. I'm not allowed to upload files, I get "550 Requested action not permitted". I login under the same user I've verified I get the correct directory listing, so absolutely everything checks out to be the exact same.
I have many clients uploading to the same directory.
I have set chmod to 733 and chown to another user on the upload folder so that the different clients do not see each others files, but that also causes the client to not see their own files after they are uploaded or not being able to resume broken uploads.
I would like the different user log in with their own username and password but all upload to the same directory and not see each others files, but just their own. Is this possible? Or does anyone have a tip how to achieve something similar?
I use vsftpd. I would like to know if there is a way to limit the upload speed. Only the upload speed so the "anon_max_rate" and "local_max_rate" don't do the job. Someone told me about the trickle but I expected a more recent application.
And I added umask 022 to the user login script problem I have: I login with user and password that exists as a local user on my suse machine. I can read and download from my homedirectory, but I cannot upload with filezilla. Then I get the error: 550 permission denied critical file transfer error
I have just started using linux. I have setup an ubuntu apache2 server. It has been running brilliantly and I am highly impressed with the Linux system. My box is an HTTP server and I am hosting a website on it. I have VSFTPD installed and functioning as my FTP software. It has worked fine so far but I have been a bit annoyed that I have had to set permissions for each file I have put on there.
Now I have run into a serious issue with the permissions being set to 600 and I really need them to 755 because I am running an automatic upload for a webcam and the Image can't be accessed due to the automatic permissions of 600 being set to the image. My extensive windows background tells me that I need to apply the correct permissions to the WWW folder and get the files to inherit these permissions automatically.
I've got a bachelors in Computer Information Systems from Metro State in MN, but sadly, we didn't spend much time familiarizing ourselves with UNIX based OSs. I'm sure I'll have plenty more questions to pose later as well. I'll pay it back with help for anyone who's working on an evil Nortel router.
I believe I've got VSFTP set up and configured (mostly) the way I want. Here is the config file:
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Using sftp, is there any way to force particular file permissions upon upload? I want the permissions on all files uploaded via sftp to be 664.
I've searched around and cannot find an answer. Many people ask similar questions and many responses recommend using umask, but as far as I understand it, umask is just a bit mask--it cannot be used to set permissions.
I'm rather new to Fedora server, but I'm attempting to run a music FTP server, where anonymous users can submit songs into one particular folder (so i can personally tag them), while other user accounts have full read-write. Here we go: I 2 directories, /music and /untagged
I want anonymous users to be able to read both directories, but only be able to upload to /untagged, and not be able to delete anything. I want users that I select to have full read-write-create-delete privileges. how would I go about this with vsftpd?
My home/container has me as the owner but the contents all belong to root...I've tried >chown cbjhawks /home/cbjhawks but that didn't change anything. Should it be >chown -R cbjhawks /home/cbjhawks? Or what is the proper command for doing this...
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.10 AMD-64 and mounted several partitions into /mnt/ directory. Now I want to be able to perform operations on those partitions without limitations. I'm trying to change the owner and group but it doesn't work. I'm typing sudo chown username filename to perform the operations.
When I installed a new copy of my distro on another partition, in order to preserve all the settings from my old my user account, I made a user account with the same name on the new installation, and then copied my old user account's files (in their entirety) to the new user account, overwriting it. I did the copying from the root account (where else? I assume the new user account can't overwrite itself while it's open), and root became the owner of everything I copied, making it impossible to open the new user account. So I then chowned the new user account's folder to myself. I still can't get in, because apparently, chown only chowned the top folder, leaving all subdirectories owned by root. How do I make chown include all subdirectories? I scanned the man page, but didn't see a parameter.
have setup a LAMP server with ubuntu 10.04 server edition x86 for my study in VMware Workstation 7.1 For a assignment I had to make a php script that would load a file up to the server and set the name in a mysql database. According to the book the server should set the image in a cryptic folder in the /tmp/ folder.
This isn't working and i also try'd locate and find to find the image i uploaded. I checked the php.ini and file uploads were on but no folder so i set that one to /tmp/ but still no images. Can anyone help me with enabling this function?
I have a samba share that I mount locally at boot through fstab. The share is writable and if I access the share directly, say with konqueror and smb (smb://hostname/sharename) then I can do anything I want (create, write, delete, edit, files/directories). I have a mount point on my local machine
and I (username dtest) was unable to do anything except read files and create directories trying to do them to the local mountpoint except as root. I figured it would be a matter of
chown -R dtest /shares/mp3
but I was unable to do that even as root, I kept getting permission denied. When I did
ls -alt /shares/ it told me the owner was 1000 and the group was root. Dtest was already a member of the root group and I was able to
chmod -R 774
as root but I still couldn't do anything except read and create directories directly via the mountpoint. Ultimately I solved this by changing the uid of user dtest via kuser and then just chowning my home directory back to dtest. It seems like as root I should be able to change the owner of the directory. I know it's because this is a samba share, but it doesn't make any sense why root couldn't just chown it. Is there another way to change the owner of a directory, or is this set by the machine hosting the samba share?
I am desperately trying to recover two folders from a Freecom FSG 3 NAS. As far as I am aware it is running Linux 2.6 based on Snapgear. After working through the hardwares' recovery procedure a number of times, the state of the device appears to get worse and worse. So I have attempted to rescue the files by using a program called Putty to access the device over SSH.When I access the device using Putty I login as admin. The folders I need to recover are located in the home folder. Listing the contents of the directory I get...
