Ubuntu :: Apply User Permissions To Not Just Folders But Also All Files

Jan 19, 2010

I want to add my daughter as a user and give her full permissions to all the same folders and files that I use. I have given her permission to folders and their sub folders however she doesn't have rwx on the individual files within the folders. What is the command line to set this up?

Also with the command;

Code:
chown -R root:root files

what is the -R for and when do I need or not need it?

Debian :: Default Ownership Of Folders And Files - Should Own By A User Without Root Permissions

Feb 12, 2011

Being new to Linux, i've just about got used to the Debian setup procedure now, but had a quick question on the default ownership of files and folders. On my default Debian installation, almost all the folders and files are owned by root:root. Is this the correct advised configuration or should the folders and files be owned by a user without root permissions - eg user:user?

Fedora :: Way To 'apply Permissions To Enclosed Files' Recursively Through Nautilus Context Menu?

Jun 14, 2011

I have a partition that I mount as /data on all of my distros of my multi-boot machine. I am having a bear of a time figuring the right way to address permissions/groups so that any distro can use it (or any removable drive).I tried (in linuxmint) making a group '/data' and assigning the users on my machine to that group, then changing the permissions/groups of the files and folders in that mount as belonging to the /data group, then booted to fedora 15, made the /data group, added the users to that group, I'm not sure that this way will work (it doesn't seem to) or if it's the best way to proceed. some of the things I don't get are:what is the '1000' user and group?is the user/group info on (in or somehow attached) the mount itself?does this seem like a good way to do this?is there on way to 'apply permissions to enclosed files' recursively through the nautilus context menu?

Server :: Permissions On New Files / Folders?

Apr 26, 2010

I have a Samba share set up on a SUSE server that about 30 Windows XP clients are connecting to on a daily basis. They connect using Winbind and their Active Directory usernames and passwords which are stored on a Windows small business server (Server 2003). The share is called "company" and it's right off the root of the partition. Within "company" there are about 75-100 folders, most of which need to be publicly available and publicly writeable. There are a few that need to be locked down to a certain group of people so I've used group membership and access control lists for those.

The permissions on new files/folders still aren't right though, so I'll just try to explain what I WANT rather than trying to resolve what is HAPPENING since I think that'll be easier. Currently the entire company directory and all subdirectories and files are user-owned by "administrator" (an active directory domain admin). I'd like new folders and files created anywhere in that directory or any subdirectory to maintain that ownership by administrator, regardless of who creates them.

Likewise, the entire directory and all subdirectories/files are group-owned by "domain users" (a builtin active directory group which is pulled in via winbind) which gives everyone write access to everything. I'd like that ownership to be maintained as well on any new files or folders created in /company or any subdirectory therein. I think this is working for the most part as I've set the setgid bit on company. I'd like any files or folders created in /company or any subdirectory therein to have 770 permissions (rwxrwx---).

So, what I want is regardless of who creates a file or folder anywhere in "company" - it should be owned by user "administrator" and group "domain users" and have 770 permissions. I'd like to make a little tweak to this post. Above I said I wanted anything created under Company to be created with group owner "domain users" - that actually only goes for anything that will be public. On the folders I have locked down via group membership and ACLs the new files/folders created within should maintain ownership of whatever group owns that directory. I should be able to do this by setting rwxrws--- permissions on secured directories.

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.

Server :: RHEL 5 - How To Set Permissions On Files / Folders

Jul 1, 2010

I am using RHEL 5 on my server. The client machines are windows XP.File sharing is through samba server which is working okay. On this file server there is a shared directory for users. This directory contains files which are used by various users through oracle APP. and DB server.

At present the folders under the "shared" folder are having all permissions i.e. 777. To restrict certain things, I want that users may read and modify the files but may not be in a position to move or delete the files. How to set the permissions on the folders/files in this scenario?

OpenSUSE Network :: Root User Has Access To Remote Folders/files Of Any User?

Jan 21, 2010

Prelude: OpenSUSE 11.2 (2.6.31.8-0.1-desktop), installed Novell client 2.0 SP2 (novell-client-2.0-sp2-sle11-i586.iso).

I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or
have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.

Ubuntu :: Adjust Permissions For Folders And Files On NTFS USB Drive?

May 21, 2010

First off I want to apologize for the fact that the first several paragraphs go into something seemingly unrelated to the subject of this thread. However I want to be sure that those who choose to lend me a hand understand where I'm coming from and why I'm asking that question.I just recently switched from Windows Vista to Ubuntu 10.04. So far I've been loving it mostly. But their is one oddball thing I haven't been able to get working. That is a pair of shared folders located on my NTFS external drive connected via USB2.

The drive was automatically mounted on first boot and has full read/write access for owner (which is my username) right out of the gate. For this reason I assumed I would be good to do this.I've been unable to get it working in Ubuntu. As it stands now I've manually added them to smb.conf, added them to the Samba Server Configuration and finally by right clicking the folder in nautilus and choosing Sharing Options. All with varying resultsAt best it will show the shares under the computer but not allow access. I've also cleared out all of these for those folders to try them individually or in different orders. What I found was that using Sharing Options first gives this error and sets nothing up. But either of the other two will at least show the share albeit with no access.

Quote:'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Invalid parameter.What I've discovered is that if I use just the Sharing Options from Nautilus on any folder located on my ext4 partition or the internal NTFS partition then it will ask if applicable to adjust the permissions and though nothing appears in smb.conf that it works more or less just fine.Having played with "ls -l" I discovered that by default that ownership of the folders on the external NTFS is set to myself and that permissions are 700. On the ext4 partition ownership is set to myself and permissions on folders 711. The folders on the internal NTFS partition has an ownership of "root" and permissions set to 777

From here I tried to use "sudo chmod" via a terminal to manually change permissions for folders on all 3 partitions and I can do so for the ext4 and the internal NTFS owned by root. But no matter what I cannot for the external NTFS.The main thing is I want to know why I can't adjust those permissions on the external. I'm convinced that something to do with the way USB drives work by default must be impacting this but I could not find a single thing anywhere to confirm this much less to offer a solution.The second thing is that I installed and used mountmanager to automatically mount the internal NTFS and according to that softwares options the setup for both it and the external NTFS are the same. But if that is true then why is the external owned by me and the internal by root and the resulting permissions are completely different?

Programming :: Test Permissions On All Files / Folders Into A Folder Recursive?

May 16, 2010

Way to test permissions on all files/folders into a folder recursive, then if those are not user:user then do :

Code:
chown user:user thatconcernedfile

The problem with that

Code:
chown user:user -R /folder

is that it is doing changes on file permissions whihch are already ok. If you wanna maintain a specific permission on a folder this is really not good this :

Code:
while [ 1 ] ; do
chown user:user -R /folder
# /folder contains 6.0 Tb
sleep 2s
done

General :: File Permissions Apply To Symlinks?

Jun 27, 2011

Let's say you have this structure:

+ directory
-- file1
-- file2
-- file3 -> /tmp/file3

file3 is a link to another file3 somewhere else on the system.

Now let's say I chmod 777 the directory and all contents inside it. Does my file3 in /tmp receive those permissions? Also, let's say we have the same situation but reversed.

/tmp/file3 -> /directory/file3

If I apply the permissions on the file being linked to, how does that effect the link?

Ubuntu :: How To Apply Breaks In Text Files

I do not know what happened. But when I move the text files back and forth between Windows and Linux, the enters/paragraphs gets messed up and square characters appears. And I think it got worse when I deleted those squares. So now it is one very long line. How do I get the long line to break every 50 characters but not having the last word get cut off mid-word? I am thinking "cat textfile > something" but I do not know what that something is.

Ubuntu :: Server Not Accessible - Changing Permissions On Folders?

Jan 3, 2011

We have a development server not accessible to the public used for testing which was setup for us. When attempting to have my PHP scripts upload an image to a folder, I have to CHMOD the folder to 777. Ideally, when a folder is created it has permissions set to 755 - I want to be able to upload to them. Is there a way to change permissions to allow the PHP scripts that run to be able to write to a folder? I know it has something to do with owner or group, but I don't know where to start.

General :: Some Folders Inherit Its Permissions Some Don't

Jan 7, 2010

I've a problem on one of my servers with file permissions. Quite simply , when I run chmod 777 -R against a folder , it seems to be inconsistent on making that particular folders permissions trickle down to the folders beneath. Some folders inherit its permissions , some don't. For example...

/projects
Contains
/Jan /Feb /Mar /April

They all in turn contain folders marked /1 , /2 , /3 , up to /10, these folders all contain more folders , running to a depth of 6.

However , depending on what folder our users save their files into , some are saved with rwxrwxr-- , some get saved with rwxrwxrx. Forgive my lack of understanding but if I run the above command against the top level folder will this not make every folder and file below it inherit its permissions of 777 ?? Or is there something else that I need to do?

Ubuntu Servers :: Default File Permissions For System Folders

What the file permissions should for the following folders:
/etc/
/home/
/lost+found/
/mnt/
/root/
/sbin/
/srv/
/tmp/

The server is running and I fixed the some of the ownership issues already. I use a basic LAMP setup with samba, and proftp.
