Ubuntu :: FTP With More Permissions

Dec 3, 2010

I have been reading online help all afternoon, and it has really helped me on setting up virtual hosts but this one confuses me.I appreciate that 'root' is not enabled for login and the recommendation is that it should not be. I also understand sudo to elevate myself to root equivalent to do admin tasks.However, I would like to use an FTP client to edit some of the files on the server but sudo obviously does not work.

At the moment I have to use sudo vi <filename> I would really like to FTP onto the server, download the file, edit it and re-upload it. However as an FTP user I do not have write permission to the files.

Ubuntu :: Permissions For Rsync And BackinTime - Setup 2nd HD With Correct Permissions?

May 31, 2011

Problem: permissions for rsync and BackinTime. Setup: Ubuntu 11.04, Two internal HD, #1=main, single boot, #2=backup drive. Question: How do I set up my 2nd HD with correct permissions? Background: I had previously a dual boot XP+10.04 with a 2nd HD formatted as NTFS. With this I was able to use my rsync and backintime to my 2nd HD with no issue. My new set up is EXT4 on both HD.

(I even tried to reformat my 2nd HD as NTFS, but that didnt fix the issue) I followed [URL] to mount the 2nd HD and get permissions. But now when I run backintime i get this error: [E] Error: rsync: opendir "/home/myhome/.ssh" failed: Permission denied (13) I did my requisite reading for a newbie, and am stuck. I ran backintime as root, and it backed up ok. How do I run my user version of backintime? (i.e. How do I fix the permission issue?)

Ubuntu :: Permissions Could Not Be Changed?

Jun 24, 2010

I recently got a T-Mobile Tap and I've been trying to connect it via USB to my laptop running Lucid.When I open up the icon that shows up on my desktop after connecting it, I can't run the setup files inside. It says: The file '/media/HUAWEI/checksetup.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.When I try to change the permissions from ready only, I get: Sorry, could not change the permissions of"checksetup.exe": Error setting permissions: Read-only file systemCan I tried calling T-Mobile but they said they don't troubleshoot with Linux. They said it's an "older operating system".

Jul 24, 2010

I was able to access it by using the following command...gksu nautilus.I don't want to have to do that every time. I would like to be able to access it by just opening "Documents" and the selecting "file system" inside of Nautilus.

Ubuntu :: How To Set Permissions And Sharing

Jul 24, 2010

I have 4 hard-drives in my tower.Hard-drive 1 contains all the system files.

hdd 2 contains all music
hdd 3 contains video
hdd 4 contains misc data

The root of the system "/" is on drive 1, and I used fstab to mount hdd 2 - 4 under /storage/music /storage/video and /storage/misc I want /storage/misc to be readable and writable by people on the LAN. The other 2, I would like to be "read" only.

what should I set the permission of /storage to and what should i put /storage/misc to.If I put /storage/misc to 777 (chmod 777 -R /storage/misc), will people ever be able to go up the "tree" and ever get access to "/"?

Ubuntu :: Permissions Could Not Be Determined?

Aug 9, 2010

I am trying to use a second sata 3.5 HD and at other times a USB 2.5 HD. Both prove a pain to use because Ubuntu tells me their permissions can not be be determined. They have only been partitioned to ext2 on Ubuntu. This happens on 9.04 10.04 and 10.10

I have searched the web about this found many answers which just do not work.

The problem is whenever we reboot the system the permissions of / dev/lp0 (line printer) is changing. So every time we are changing the / dev/lp0 permissions through root using chmod 777 /dev/lp0

Is there any smooth solution for this? Why the /dev/lp0 permissions are changed with every reboot?

Ubuntu :: Setting Up FTP With Permissions?

Dec 29, 2010

I recently got an old computer to use as a server and I have a whole list of things I want to do on it, but I'm having difficulties.When I installed the server, I installed AMP, FTP, Samba, CUPS, and some other items. I made a user account called 'nessdan' which (currently!) is in these groups:

www-data adm dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin sambashare admin

The www-data group was added because I wanted to FTP my site files into '/var/www/' . Okay, that ended up working out for me. This is where things got sticky. I installed PHPMyAdmin and the files went to '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/' . I wanted to install a new theme so I downloaded it onto my Laptop, then logged in via FTP but couldn't transfer files into there! It turns out the folder was owned by 'root' and was in the group 'root'. The only thing I could come up with was to change that folders permissions so the owner was 'nessdan' and the group 'admin'. I was going to do that to the entire /usr/share/ folder but I didn't know whether or not I should be changing the permissions in the first place.

But the the trend continues! I have my print server setup and working but I wanted the server to hold the Windows drivers, so I went to '/var/lib/samba/' to do some work but noticed that a lot of the files' permissions were locked down to read only and the owner and group were 'root' . I ended up doing a 'chmod 775' and changing the owner and group to 'nessdan' and 'admin', respectively. Well I transfered over the files but now the service nmbd isn't working. The good news is, I expected to mess something up along the way and had already planned on reinstalling Ubuntu Server 10.10. I've only had the server for 4 days now and I knew from the beginning I'd be wiping it clean. I want to know how to set this thing up proper and the biggest problem is getting access into folders so I can FTP into them.When I do wipe my PC clean and start anew, how should I go about the changes that I did before (PHPMyAdmin, Samba Driver Folder)?

Ubuntu :: Sudo Permissions And Timeouts?

Feb 3, 2010

I want to make a script for something, but I'm worried the timeouts on sudo permissions (how you can't got more than 5/10 minutes between sudo commands before needing your password again). Basically, I don't want my script to be redundant and require overseeing for password inputs.

sudo echo Hello.
sleep 6000
sudo echo This is text. This shows the basis of the problem. I will need to enter my password twice.

Would allowing it to run uninterrupted be as easy as running this theoretical shell script his sudo to begin with?

Ubuntu Security :: How To Truly Replace All Permissions For Mac HD

Apr 7, 2010

I am not putting lnux on my mac, so I don't think it goes in the Apple section and Security is the closest I could find regarding file permissions, so excuse me if I am in the wrong area for this question. I need to back up my macbook (OSX) data. I do not have another mac nor do my friendsw.. I do have a PC running ubuntu 9 though. So I hook it up and can see it, but all the document are locked and I dont have permissions.... now with windows I know how to take over permissions, I have looked online and the closest I found is using the temporary root user command to view all locked files but that gets me to about 25% my data.
