The user "abimail" has a mailbox specified in /home/abimail/.spop3d which is /var/mail/abimail. The permissions of /var/mail/abimail are:
Code: rwxrwx--- 1 abimail mailgroup 192113 2010-01-28 20:24 /var/mail/abimail. When logging in to solid-pop3d as user abimail and attempting to fetch mails, the login works but it will pop up the error "can't open mailbox file"; syslog entries: Code: Jan 31 17:38:10 h1347290 solid-pop3d: user abimail authenticated - 220.127.116.11 Jan 31 17:38:10 h1347290 solid-pop3d: mailbox: can't open mailbox file: /var/mail/abimail Jan 31 17:38:10 h1347290 solid-pop3d: mailbox: open: Permission denied
I recently setup an email server on Fedora Core (14). Sendmail is running and I am trying to authenticate from a client pc using imaps. I installed Cyrus-imap and it is running and listening on 993. When I try to login, it doesn't accept authentication even though I verified the user's password is correct. (tested with ssh)Is there something I have to do with Cyrus or on the server to allow connections to email? I have not used Cyrus before. I am attempting to access my mail folders via Sendmail and did not make mailboxes in Cyrus. I did allow imaps through the firewall.
I have proftpd @ Ubuntu 9.04 server. It authenticates users via Auth file, e.g. those are "FTP only" users, not real linux users. Each of them has assigned home dir in the same auth file. They also get Chrooted into it, e.g. default dir is ~ in proftpd.conf They can connect and download files successfully, however, they cannot upload anything or create directory: 550 permission denied error.
When I login via ssh and change user to proftpd user, I can create directories in that particular place, so I guess it's not Linux permissions problem? Or is it? /var/log/daemon.log is the place where proftpd stores its logs, but I cannot find anything relevant there
I am running cyrus 2.1 on OpenSusu 11.0. A couple of days ago I tried to install ispCP and it ending up trash my email. I restored everything in /etc/postfix where ispCP had changed a load of files, but unfortunately that did not correct all of my problems. I have several domains with multiple users, most of which deliver to a few local address.
joe@domain1 delivers to joe admin@domain1 delivers to joe fred@domain2 delivers to fred admin@domain2 delivers to fred
all of the email intended for local user is delivered to a single user (e.g. larry).Email that is redirected to an external user (e.g. email@example.com) works fine. Email to non-existent users fails, as expect. I tried deleting the mail box for one of the users and re-creating it, but the problem continues. I have looked through many HOWTOs, web pages and man-pages, but I cannot find any configuration options that addresses this kind of thing.
I'm running SUSE linux Server version 11. I want to configure mail server with postfix & cyrus-imap. For that, i have read many documents in Internet by i met issues. I'm running DNS in this server & it's ok Now I cannont send mail through command line.
i installed Slackware 13.1 64 bits in a asus laptop and until now everything is running ok. But when i tried to mount a usb pendrive, i just can mount it as root;well, i thought there would be no problem, i will change permissions with chmod and everyone could access, read and write on it the command :
mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb1 /mnt/kingston
and making ls -l the result is :
drwx------ 1 root root 12288 Dec 8 17:20 kingston
so next i wrote (as root):
chmod 777 -R kingston
and the message was "Operation not supported" i tried also changing the ownership permission :
im trying to install xmgrace on my ubuntu 7.10 it seems that it have to be written in the filesystem cuz i get: mkdir: cannot create directory `/usr/local/grace': Permission denied some said that i must have root privileges ((how can i get them)) note: i do have access to some screen having the word (ROOT) at its beginning.
I'm using my AntiX M8 Live CD to repair a hosed Windows installation, I downloaded ComboFix to ~/home/Desktop and now I'm trying to copy (cp) the file to /mnt/ where I have already mounted the NTFS Windows partition. NTFS3G is integrated into AntiX, right? So why am I having permissions errors?
mepis1:/home/demo# cp -v Desktop/ComboFix.exe /mnt/SwSetup/ `Desktop/ComboFix.exe' -> `/mnt/SwSetup/ComboFix.exe' cp: cannot create regular file `/mnt/SwSetup/ComboFix.exe': Permission denied mepis1:/home/demo# So far, I can read it without any errors in Terminal and navigate through the whole filesystem in ROX-Filer, Do I need to edit /etc/fstab to be able to write to an ntfs drive?
I have a droid phone, and I have ubuntu 9 running on it. This is done by chrooting since the phone runs a linux kernel. And it works... I have a question though. tightvncserver does work, and its able to listen on 127.0.0.1.. Its how you view your X session. So you chroot to Ubuntu, then start vncserver. Then switch back to android and login to ubuntu via vnc client. but apache, mysql, and postgresql do not work. Well. They dont seem too.. except for mysql. Mysql will start but only if you tell it not to use networking by saying skip-networking in my.cnf
Mysql says: mysqld cant create ip socket permission denied Apache2 says it can find 127.0.0.1 but doesnt actually run same with postgresql... All seem to be compiled with arm architecture. So why does tightvncwork? Why is it so special? How can it listen on the loop back (127.0.0.1) when nothing else can...
I have /proc and /dev bind to the chroot side. I can run ifconfig okay, and I can run /etc/init.d/networking start okay.. But apache2, mysql, etc have problems binding. I have removed apparmor even though technically its not running, but I removed it and its configuration files, just because I thought perhaps mysql looks at apparmor, but I doubted it.
I have a cgi script that tries to get the IP address of a domain. the Domain is defined in Bind, yet it can not resolve it. I put the domain in the host file and it then gives a Error: unable to create socket - Permission denied
I figure I have to do some code changes to the script but here I would like an explaination as to the error I am getting.
An uncaught exception was raised: [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/media/e6f6ac46-4bfc-487b-9c81-aab706ead9e3/boot'
The above is the error message I get when I try to create an usb-flash boot drive. I downloaded the iso for Mint10 and use the "create startup disk" program to create the boot drive. I can see both the iso and the flash drive within the program, but when I click on "create disk" I get the above error message?
I setup a postfix mail server. Tested it to make sure it was secure and all seemed good.I sent some test messages and see from the logs that mail is being delivered to the recipient. its only delivering mail to my user's local mbox on the linux server. IMAP appears to have its own mailbox and the two boxes are no linked. I was thinking it was an alias issue however I did at one point have the mailboxes to be the same.... now they are different... Here is the config file.... (I changed the domain names for privacy).
Code: # traceroute -I 18.104.22.168 Note: the -i and -I options were exchangedfor compability with LBL traceroute Use -I for ICMP, and -i <ifname> to specify the interface name unable to create ICMP send socket: Permission denied Note that the command was done as root. This worked in 11.3.
And yes, it works without the "-I". But it should work with the "-I". One shouldn't have to boot into Windows, just to run "tracert" there.
I have a Linux server that has local mail service. There are few user accounts on this server. User may send the mail to each other but that only restrict to LAN environment only.
For example, I may
# mail user1
To send mail to user1. User are not able to send mail to public. Some service like hylafax using this local mail service to send notification of fax status.
I don't want to manage and maintain local mail service anymore. I have subscribed a package from ISP to host a public domain of my own. I wish to have my hylafax service to able to send the notification mails to public mail server, is that possible to do it? It is great if all mails that send to local mail server may forward to public mail server. That makes the local mail service serve mail forward only.
I have a user (let's call him John) who is not able to list contents of several 777 directories even though it appears he has permission to.
Case in point, as root:
If I use ls -a or strictly ls as john, I can list the contents of the nss directory:
That says to me that I have an issue listing permissions. Fine, I don't really need john to be able to list permissions. I want him to have rwx access to /media/nss/ENG which as you can see from my listing as root shouldn't be a problem since the perms on that dir are 777.
I am able to CD into the ENG directory or any other directory or subdirectory in /media/nss that has equivalent 777 perms, but once in the directories I can't list the contents:
I can get anywhere and do anything I want under the media/nss folder as john, except listing files. I even tried using an ACL i.e.
I am trying to give an SSH user on my server permission to compile C exploit with gcc, and I have had no luck. Every time i try to run gcc i get: "sh: /usr/bin/gcc: Permission denied. Has anyone else had this problem with this ?
I installed proftpd on a new CentOS 5 server, yet when FTPing in (I can log in fine), the files and directories do not list and I get a "550 filename: Permission denied" error each time I try to "put" or "get" a file (I can tell that the file is there, though, because if I try to access a non-existent file, I get a "No such file or directory error" instead of the permission denied error).
I am getting permission denied after su - <username>. I have checked the permission and did not get any error.
[root@NF-Provider-SOC /]# su - nfadmin -bash-3.00$ cat /var/log/messages cat: /var/log/messages: Permission denied -bash-3.00$ pwd /home/nfadmin -bash-3.00$ which bash /bin/bash -bash-3.00$ crontab -l cron/nfadmin: Permission denied -bash-3.00$ id uid=501(nfadmin) gid=503(nfadmin) groups=502(dba),503(nfadmin) -bash-3.00$ tailf /var/log/messages Cannot open "/var/log/messages" for read Permission denied and permission in home dir is 755.
I just downloaded OpenOffice 3.2.1 from the openoffice.org weebsite. I followed the instructions precisely and everytime ended up in the same error message - 'error: can't create transaction lock on /var/lib/rpm/.rpm.lock (Permission denied)'. I am using Fedora 13.
I recently switched from Ubuntu Maverick 32-bit to 64-bit so I could compile Android's latest revision, Gingerbread.
Everything went pretty smoothly and I managed to fix most issues that was caused due to the switch.
But each time I open terminal, the following error shows up:
Code: mkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt/cgroups/cpu': Permission denied bash: /mnt/cgroups/cpu/19088/notify_on_release: No such file or directory bash: /mnt/cgroups/cpu/19088/tasks: No such file or directory
I've tried manually creating that directory as root but the error remains.
When trying to mount samba share off of domain member server sysimage in Windows receive error "There are currently no logon servers available to service this logon request". When trying to mount.cifs from PDC to samba share on sysimage receive error "mount error(13): Permission denied".
PDC is ClearOS 5.2 named "dc0" Samba file server is CentOS 5.5 x86_64 named "sysimage" dc0 Samba version is samba - 3.5.5-1.1.v5.i386 sysimage Samba version is samba-3.0.33-3.29.el5_5.1.x86_64
dc0 is configured correctly to my knowledge, windows machines can join domain, domain users can log into windows machines, user directories are mapped properly, logon scripts run properly. sysimage ldap authentication is set up as shown in "Procedure 7.1.
I just set up a storage server with NFS sharing. Everything work fine but, when trying to mount the remote partition on my ws, this is the issue: /usr/sbin/start-statd: line 8: /sbin/rpc.statd: Permission denied /usr/sbin/start-statd: line 8: /sbin/rpc.statd: Success mount.nfs: rpc.statd is not running but is required for remote locking. mount.nfs: Either use '-o nolock' to keep locks local, or start statd.
I tried so to mount it locally : mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting localhost:/var/ftp/pub /mnt I don't think it depends because of the permiss of the directory, and anyway it's 1777.
Short version:I began getting "out of space" errors on my soho server this week. I know I only had about 300Gi of data on the 640Gi drive. I can't find what's using the extra space. As the attached screenshots show, "sudo xdiskusage" finds a block of 223.7Gi with "permission denied" but sudo Disk Usage Analyzer doesn't see it. What is using the space, and how do I reclaim it?
Long Version:I first tried to figure something out using SSH and the df and du commands, but my command line knowledge is weak. I tried to log onto Gnome to use its console but kept getting booted back to the GUI login. After deleting some old files using Webmin, I finally was able to log into Gnome and use some GUI utilities. As you can see from the screenshots, "sudo xdiskusage" finds a block of 223.7Gi with "permission denied" but sudo Disk Usage Analyzer doesn't see it. The system behaves as if that block is real denying me use of that space.
I suspected the manner in which I've mounted the second HD for use as backup storage only might be the problem, but really have no clue how to confirm that. The system returns the same numbers regardless of whether the second drive is mounted or not.
I've attached the dmesg results in a text file
Computer Details Ubuntu 10.10 4Gi RAM 1 640Gi HD mounted as / 1 640Gi HD mounted as /backup (used only by Simple Backup) Running Server Apps: Samba, Apache, SSH, mySQL, webmin
fresh install of ubuntu karmic server. fresh, vanilla install of openssh-server attempt to connect either via standard ssh, linux client or puTTY win32 client system (both on local LAN)
First connect is great. connection established.
Second connection (via multiple clients) screams that: "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" and since I have strict checking, won't let me continue.
So, i do a little
To flush it out (i have backups,).
Then i try again:
I get the typical "Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?" and i say yes. at which point, i offer the password for the username in question and it flat out refuses: "Permission denied, please try again."
Ok, so i have even gone as far as do a complete rip and replace of the ssh server and it's config files, however this continues to loop and repeat.
So, question one: Why does my key change?
Question two: Why am i getting "permission denied" errors on subsequent connect.
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.
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'm trying to setup a network boot server and I'm having an issue with tftp. In the /etc/xinetd.d/tftp file, I added the "-v" (verbose) option to the server arg line so that i could figure out what was happening. When i looked at the /var/log/messages log file, it let me know that permission was denied to /tftpboot/nbi_img.
So, in short, my problem is that tftp isn't working because it doesn't have permission to /tftpboot/nbi_img. I can't figure out why. I stumbled upon a site where the user figured out a temporary fix to this issue and what he did was disabled the xinetd service and typed the following command:/usr/sbin/in.tftpd -l -v -v -s /tftpboot/nbi_imgWhen I do this as well, it works! but only until I restart and then I have to do that again. Is there a way to be able to fix that for good?
I have configured samba server.My requirement was that the path which i have to share was /srv/www/htdocs.With this the shared path for developer user was /srv/www/htdocs/projects.
So in the smb.conf file i made the entries as following:
After that root user was able login to both /srv/www/htdocs and also project folder and developer was only able to login to projects folder.That was according to my requirement but now the problem is that when developer is trying to edit any file in projects folder he is getting error that you dont have permissions to change this file.But developer should be able to edit any files. What changes i need to do now.
I'm sooo exausted after two days of fooling with this. The problem: Apr 27 17:29:21 mxkasib dovecot: lda: Error: userdb lookup: connect(/var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb) failed: Permission denied (euid=8(mail) egid=12(mail) missing +w perm: /var/run/dovecot/auth-userdb, euid is not dir owner)
Obviously, dovecot-lda, instanced by postfix, couldn't access the auth-userdb file because of permission. There are plenty of topics over the internet, the problem is really simple. Except for I've got all the permissions needed, or it seems to me so and I'm missing something. Here is some additional information:
I've given all the permissions I could imagine. It's even devil 666, and it still complains.
I have created a basic ssh server and i haven't done any configuring to it other than to port forward port 22. i am trying to connect to it from a client computer (they are on the same router). i enter the command "SSH <IP of the server>", and it asks me for the password. i have tried "SSH <my user name>@<IP of client>", but it says permission denied.
