Ubuntu Security :: How To Change Permissions To Allow EXE And JAR Files

Apr 4, 2011

I've been using Ubuntu for a few years and I am having issues trying to load .jar files and .exe files in Wine. I keep getting an error message that says my computer doesn't have permission to load these files. I've done some research and found people saying to enable the file as executable in the files properties, to enable executable in the permissions folder, and to allow source code on the Ubuntu Software screen, but whenever I try to check these boxes, they immediately revert to having a line through them instead. I remember when I was running Ubuntu a few years ago I was able to completely disable this restriction in terminal, but I can't remember what I did.

Ubuntu Servers :: Cannot Change File Permissions On Server

Aug 25, 2010

I'm working on a remote Ubuntu 9.10 server, which is accessed via VPN. I installed Joomla, but had difficulty uploading new components, which I traced to a file permissions problem. I used FileZilla to FTP onto the site and tried to make the chmod changes I needed, but the commands kept failing. Eventually, I contacted the sys admin and told him I thought that there was an ownership problem with the directories. He checked and told me that I was logging in with exactly the same user name and password that he was using (it's not a live system currently) and that he could make chmod changes without any problems. Because all my attempts were still failing, he eventually did the following:

chown -R administrator:administrator /var/www

/var/www is where all the Joomla files are stored and Administrator is the user name.Now I find that when I run a chmod command in FileZilla, the server reports that it worked (see below):

Status:Connected
Status:Retrieving directory listing...
Command:CWD /etc

[code].....

However, if I go back and check the tmp folder permissions, I find that they are still set to 777.This still looks like an ownership problem to me, but I don't understand why the server seems to think that the chmod changes are working, when they aren't.

Ubuntu :: Ownership & Permissions Change When Files Burned To DVD+RW?

Jan 18, 2010

After burning files to DVD+RW, the owner is changed to root, and all permissions are read only. I want to periodically open these files, update them, and save to the DVD again, but I no longer have permission and cannot change the permissions since I am no longer the owner. I tried sudo commands, but get responses "Read only file system". I have erased and reformatted the DVD and started over but get the same results.
I have Ubuntu 9.04, and have tried Brasero and Nautilus and get the same problem. Am I using the wrong kind of DVD/CD?

Ubuntu :: Can't Change The File Permissions Of Files And Folders

Nov 17, 2010

I've just read that I can't change the file permissions of files and folders if they are sitting in what was my old Windows D: drive. Is this correct? If so what is the work-around?

I don't want to have to cut and paste that entire D: drive's contents over to a recognised Ubuntu folder. I had in my mind that this D drive would continue to be my data dumping ground, to which I need read/write access to.

Ubuntu :: Change Permissions On Files So Can Copy Them Freely

Apr 30, 2011

My laptop has Ubuntu as a dual boot. Many times I want to copy files from one folder to another. But I run into permissions problems.

For example, I downloaded a program that required me to put a rules file in /etc/udev/rules.d But when I tried to do that, I got an error: "permission denied"

Is there any way to change permissions on folders so that I can freely copy them from one folder to another? That would make life a lot easier.

Ubuntu Servers :: How In World Can I Change Permissions Either On Drive Or Folder

Jul 10, 2011

I had an old windoz 2003 server running a few recreational web sites. I've grown tired of all the hacking attempts, FTP floods, etc. Ok.. I've grown tired of windoz period.When I set the server up, I had the operating system on one physical drive and stored all of the web files on a separate physical drive just in case I ever wanted to make some changes to the operating system.in my adventurous ways, I've dumped windoz and installed ubuntu 11, 32 bit server edition on this machine. It is running fine from what I see on the server side. The first problem I've noticed is when even attempting to navigate to localhost through the server's web browser, I get a permissions issue.

So... off to the drive where the httpd.conf file points to. This is the second physical drive. When checking permissions and attempting to change them to the correct ones for the folder, I can't change them. I've tried through the GUI and the terminal as root. Neither way will change the permissions.I've stepped back and checked the permissions on the physical drive the files are stored on. I am having the same issues with the drive itself. How in the world can I change the permissions either on the drive or the folder? Is there something I should do as far as the drive's mounting?

I just installed Karmic, but I can't copy an old user's home folder (/home/oldusername/) because everything is owned by root.I read but I'm concerned about messing up the system or the files in that old user's folder.So, how do I adjust the permissions of the files in /home/oldusername so that I can use openssh to copy them over my home network to my other computer? I have the ssh part figured out, but the files will not copy to the laptop due to permissions.

Ubuntu Servers :: Permissions Error For Phpmyadmin After Change To Fast CGI (mod Fcgid)?

Nov 22, 2010

I'm still getting my head around setting things up on my web server, I've configured php to run off of Fast CGI, rather than mod_php, due to better memory consumption. I've managed to get my virtual hosts configured to work with fastcgi, ensuring the following options are set:

AddHandler fcgid-script .php
FCGIWrapper /usr/lib/cgi-bin/php5 .php
Options +ExecCGI FollowSymLinks

I tried adding those settings to /etc/phpmyadmin/apache.conf, but this doesn't seem to work. Whenever I go to www.mydomain.com/phpmyadmin , I just get a 403 Forbidden Error. This used to work no problems on mod_php.

[URL].. because the alias is set so that my virtual hosts can access it through /phpmyadmin. There is probably something basic I am missing here.

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Not Change Owner And Group Permissions On User Uploads

Jul 17, 2011

In my /var/www directory, I have everything set up with:
user: www-data
group: developers
directories: chmod 570
files: chmod 460

Everything seems fine. Users from the developers group can edit files and all, but now we began using the Git repository, and whenever a user edits a file (ie. Joe who is a developer,) file permissions get screwed again. Now they're:
user: Joe
group: Joe
directories: chmod 755
files: chmod 644
How can I fix this so permissions remain the same?

Software :: Change The Permissions Of The InfoBright Created Files?

May 12, 2010

I have a NFS shared directory between two linux machines, one with RedHat3 and one with CentOS 5.4.On the CentOS 5.4 machine I have InfoBright installed. In that directory, I want to create files with InfoBright and then to select from them with MySQL on the RedHat3 machine.The problem is that InfoBright creates files with 660 permissions and mysql with 666, and I cannot SELECT from any file due to the fact that is not "readable by all"(this is the actual error). I can change the permissions manually, but I need them to be created with 666 permissions, so that I can import them automatically on the other side with a script.Is there any way to change the permissions of the InfoBright created files?

Ubuntu Servers :: Change File Or Folder Permissions On A Separate Internal Drive In 10.10?

Jan 23, 2011

Every time I try to change file or folder permissions on a separate internal drive in ubuntu 10.10 desktop in sudo file manager, It sets it right back to the way it was before and doesn't save the permissions I want to change it to. The files aren't critical system files that are not even existent on this hard drive.

Its on a completely separate drive, Yet aren't I suppose to be in control of what gets changed to what? Instead of a Operating System doing something just for my safety? A simple AVI files permissions being changed shouldn't hurt anything. How to I stop ubuntu 10.10 from auto setting the permissions of my folders and files? Its really starting to me off right now. I've been looking around on google for Auto reset permissions for ubuntu, Haven't found one word about it. Yet I'm just going to assume someone might know how to resolve this? Or has dealed with this before.

I'm just trying to Forcefully set my folders on my separate drive all to 777 because they are all 775 and 755 and I can only access them with Write privileges if I run the SUDO file manager which I really hate having to do every so often I'm sure you can relate to how annoying it is to have to open up terminal and type something in to open a fully priviledged file manager.

Debian :: Change Default Permissions For Newly Created Files?

Jan 19, 2011

I'm new to Debian. I've read the documentation on this but it is too heavy for a new user to understand. I would like to change the default permissions for newly created files/directories.

I want all newly created files by 'user1' to have the default permissions of:
1. "owner can read and write"
2. "group can read and write"
3. "other can read only"

Permission 1 and 3 are already default. But I would like number 2 to be default as well. (the current default for group is read only).

General :: Chmod Doesn't Change Permissions On Files In Subdirs

May 15, 2011

I have a Qnap 219p NAS to which I have connected a USB external harddrive. I can access the external harddrive from my windows box using the network share, but at first i couldn't access the folders. The permissions set in the NAS GUI for the external drive is correct and are identical to the permissions set to the 2 internal drives.

I ssh'ed to the nas and used 'chmod -R 770 /share/external/sds1' - this granted me access to the folders, and some files. I can open all files in the root, but if I go just 2 folders 'deeper', i can't open the files in this folder, and in the folders after that.

In ssh, if i navigate to the folder wher I cannot open the files and use 'ls -l', i can see that the permissions (770) hasn't been applied to these files. How can I get chmod to apply the 770 permission to all files, folders, subfolders and files in subfolders etc., without having to chmod every folder one by one?

Ubuntu Servers :: Server Process Created Files Permissions

Nov 20, 2010

Currently have access to a VPS where we are running a small game server on ubuntu - the problem is that it is a multi-user environment, so when one person restarts the server process, all files it creates are owned by that users name and group. I have created a group called 'game' and added both users to it, but I need to know how to make all files in the game server's directory to be r/w/x for the group 'game'. Currently, I have a script that chowns and chmods all files recursively on startup, but I'd prefer not having to do this.

Ubuntu Servers :: Rsync Backup - Transfer Files With Appropriate Permissions

Dec 4, 2010

I wrote a script to wake up my windows machine and do an rsync backup of some of my files. I wanted to make this command a accessible through local bin so I made it executable. However the problem is that when I copies files is copies them with root permissions and i can edit or delete them. How can I set the files so they transfer with the proper permissions for my Ubuntu user?

Code:
#!/bin/bash
# Description: This script first wakes up the client machine and syncs the appropriate folders.
# Finally the script shuts down the client if it was off to begin with.
if [ "$(whoami)" != "root" ]; then
echo "Permission Denied"
