General :: Multiple Users To Create Directories Over SFTP So The New Directories Keep The Same Permissions?

May 15, 2011

I want to make a webserver with multiple users allowed to login through SFTP to a specific folder, www.Multiple users are added, lets say user1 and user2, and all of them belonging to the www-data group. The www directory has an owner www-data and a group www-data.

I have used chmod -R 775 on the www folder, but after I try to create a folder test through my SFTP server (using Filezilla) the group of the directory created has only r and x permissions, and I am not able to log in with the second user user2 and create a directory within www/test due to a lack of w permission to the group.

I also tried using chmod 2775 on www directory, but without luck. Can somebody explain to me, how can I make it so that a newly created directory inherits the root directory group permissions?

Ubuntu :: Safely Removing Partition

Feb 11, 2011

I have a 32-bit laptop running a dual boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.09 LTS.I've decided that Ubuntu just isn't for me, and I want to remove the partition and restore the extra hard drive space back to Windows 7.

Now, a few months ago, I accidentally deleted my Ubuntu partition through Windows Disk Management, and I ended up not being able to boot up my computer. I can't remember what the exact cause was, but I think it was a problem with the GRUB, and I think I fixed it by reinstalling Ubuntu. Does anyone know how I can safely remove the Ubuntu partition without having to go through all this again?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Safely Uninstall Peppermint OS

May 13, 2010

In my case, getting fed up with Lucid's flaky behaviour with my particular display, having tried various solutions that were really only half-baked workarounds (the best being to install a mainline kernel) - I decided to install Peppermint Linux next to Ubuntu, thus creating a dual boot system. But I've decided I don't really like Peppermint Linux. Further, in the meantime, I've found a workaround for Lucid which (so far) seems like a longer term solution (I installed Kernel xxxx?-22, while increasing my display's refresh rate - and now all is hunky-dory - it starts perfectly, with a 'normal' visual effects desktop, and even Cheese no longer crashes the system with my old webcam).

Now here's the rub....
How to (a) uninstall Peppermint Linux (with its Grub - which was obviously set over Lucid's) (b) reclaiming the whole hard drive (it's only 40gb total - as it's an oldish machine) for Lucid - without having to reinstall Lucid, which I now have very nicely set up indeed, albeit currently squeezed for space? Is there some nice patient geek out there who can put me out of my misery with a step by step guide? I've tried Google - but everyone with a similar problem seems to want to reclaim the space for Windows!

Ubuntu :: External HD - Still Flashing After Safely Removed?

Jul 5, 2010

I've used both 9.10 and 10.04, but I noticed, when I in 9.10 mounted my external HD and then safely removed it (without removing the USB-cable) it used to flash for 3-4 seconds (indicator-light) and then go out.

Now, in 10.04, it just keeps flashing (indicator-light), even though I have removed it safely (not unplugged it though). Why would it do this? The indicator-light should only flash if there is activity going on on the HD?
