General :: Chown - Set The Permissions Of An Entire Directory To "all"?

Jan 17, 2010

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.

General :: Modifying FTP User' Rights / Permissions / Upload Criteria

Jul 6, 2010

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).

Security :: Permissions For Chown - Command Executed By Root Only

Feb 22, 2010

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?

Server :: Vsftpd Denies Upload From One IP Range?

Dec 7, 2010

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.

Software :: VSFTPD - Same Upload Folder, Different Users?

Nov 18, 2010

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?

Slackware :: Vsftpd - Any Way To Limit Upload Speed

Server :: File Permissions After FTP Upload?

Jun 9, 2009

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.

Software :: VSFTPD And Uploaded File Permissions?

Mar 6, 2011

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:

Ubuntu :: Sftp Force Permissions On Upload?

Mar 17, 2011

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.

Fedora Servers :: Vsftpd And Permissions - Unable To Delete Anything

Jan 16, 2009

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?

Security :: Folder Permissions To Avoid File Upload By Http User?

Feb 24, 2011

However, configured a website on a dedicated server using WHM/cPanel. The site was uploaded using the master account for the website.

The security issue is public users are able to upload files on to my server via the website. They could even access the root and execute whatever they want on the server.

I have consulted with 2-3 Linux experts. According to them, the PHP user has rights to execute anything on the server or upload & store files in whichever folder they want.

Can I protect my folders to avoid file uploads via the website. The application has security vulnerabilites. However, I want to prevent hackers to enter my site until the vulnerabilities are fixed.

General :: Include The Subdirectories In A Chown?

Jul 19, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 No Upload Folder In /tmp With Php Upload Script?

Jun 13, 2010

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?

General :: Root Can't Chown Mount Point For Samba Share?

May 30, 2010

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?

General :: Freecom FSG3 - SU Permission Denied When Attempting Chmod Or Chown?

Apr 27, 2010

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...

/home $ ls -la
ls: ./.twonkymedia: Permission denied
ls: ./Sarah: Permission denied
