Fedora Servers :: Can't (su - Vmail) Permission Denied [Courier Set Up]?
Jan 13, 2011
I was setting up a Postfix email server, and I was following a basic tutorial here. I successfully installed all the required packaged, and then set up a Virtual user for the mailbox, and Set up a new user with this.
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'm currently running Karmic on a old Dell Pentium 4, and I am having trouble copying files to this box from my laptop which is running Linux Mint Helena. I am able to see and connect to the shared directory on the Dell, copy and execute files from there, but cannot write to it. The permissions have been set to 777 on the shared directory and sub directories within that. The older Dell has a PATA hard disk, 300gb, while my newer laptop has a SATA hard disk. I've read that this can be a problem, and permissions may not be recognized? I'm not able to connect to the laptop from the Dell, neither of the administrator logins work, though I maybe need to do this as root?
Here is the smb.conf file I am running on both machines:
I want to be able to write to my server, not just read and execute. I am also not able to write to the server when logged on to a windows machine on the same network.
Just had a new VPS installed running Ubuntu Server 8.04 Getting some errors when I connect to the server and try to use apt.. only trying to install nano and after messing around I've managed to get the error to change.. but still can't get any further.
# sudo apt-get install nano Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done
I want to use SSH to connect to my desktop. I have used Ubuntu 10.10's encryption to encrypt my home folder (thus encrypting my .ssh folder). This means that the OpenSSH doesn't have access to my .ssh folder. When I try to log into SSH before logging in on the local machine I get the following error:
If I log onto the machine, then use SSH it works fine. I want to use key based login, One way to get around this error would be use a different authorized_keys file, but I don't know of a way to do this. This is the contents of my sshd_config file:
# Package generated configuration file # See the sshd_config(5) manpage for details # What ports, IPs and protocols we listen for
I am using Ubuntu server edition 10.04.1 running in Vmware server 2.02.I am connect via Putty so I can use copy and paste.My first goal is configuring a ftp server using PureFtpd using this guide.In section 10 I need to write this command
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.
I wanted to setup a local Apache2 server for some programming and testing. I installed and got Apache2 working with PHP, MySQL and all works fine. Now I wanted to add an additional directory to somewhere in my /home. And that's where things went wrong. I went to edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default. This is it:
Code: You don't have permission to access /po/ on this server. So I go to the logfile; which says this: Code: [Sat May 08 16:43:51 2010] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: access to /po/ denied
I tried a lot of stuff using chmod and chown, but all to no avail. I tried to change the ownership of the /home/name/web to root, and to www-data, I changed file permissions to allow executing the files.
After upgrading ubuntu server to the latest version (according to apt-get) proftpd stopped working. When I try to execute proftpd I get the following message (when logged in as root or user with root privileges) :
Line 18 in modules.conf looks like this:
I've tried removing and re-installing proftpd, but this doesn't help
If I comment line 18 in modules.conf, I just get permission denied on the next LoadModule command...
Can I remove all modules? or is there a way of fixing the permission denied issue?
I am attempting to setup an Ubuntu server as a secondary DNS server. It seems whenever it tries to dump the master file the system log shows Permission denied.let me know if more information is needed.NOTE: where it says example.com I have simply removed my actual Domain name.

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 - 18.104.22.168 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
Running newaliasespostalias: fatal: open database /etc/aliases.db: Permission deniedin my /etc I do not have a aliases.db only an aliases.I cp aliases aliases.db but when I try and install post fix again it gives me the same error and aliases.db goes away.
I have stipped down the test to the basics and still can't get it to work.I have a file called test.php stored in /usr/share/data/audio (an aliased directory in apache). This file simply contains the code...
Code: <?php fopen('play.xml', 'w') or die("can't open file");;
-xmms does support the "Expensive Hi Fi", wich as i told i've allreday installed and works.
-Xmms doesn't support the "Analog Vu Meter Plugin" for that skin, wich i don't know were to download(i only am able to see the images of it at [url]?content=49220"-3rd picture bellow, left side-the "Sony Vu's").
-The http page refers the skins and the plugin to KDE graphic environment, i'm using GNOME, and i'm not shure that this may make any difference.
-After the exausting net reading, i think...?, that Audacious does support the "Expensive Hi Fi" and the "Analog Vu Meter Plugin".
As i told, i don't give up that easy, and Audacious seems to be some upgrade or evolution of Xmms, and it as that "retro classic" look that i like and can be personalized like Xmms.
So, i've allready installed Audacios, with all the necessary codecs and libraries, and it's working so well as Xmms worked.
But know i'm having another problem :
-To personalize skins in Audacious(...more exausting net reading...), the operation should be so easy as:
-For any skin that we want(*.wal;*.wsz or compressed one's...), download it and copy it into:/users/share/audacious/Skins, wich i've allready tried(such as skins pasted into .xmms), but i get this error message:"Permission denied"!
trouble when I log in the fedora as a normal user(not root) today. When I fill the username and the password press enter key. Then pop up a little window locate at topleft corner. And have one line message : "/usr/bin/xterm : Could not exec /bin/bash : Permission Denied"hen I log in as root, it's ok. And when I open shell and type "su username" then the console print "su: /bin/bash: Permission denied"I have checked the perms of "/bin/bash" , it's 755. And I have tried all things which suggested from articles searched through Google. like change / or /root and other directory's permissions but failed
I run a small home network with a wireless network using Apple airport wireless router. I have two macs and one Linux box (Fedora 13). Everything worked until about a week ago. Now the two macs can communicate with each other, and one of the macs can communicate with the Linux box, but the other can't, which is a bummer because it is a print server.
Pinging from the mac to the linux box gives the error message:

It's running as a root, what permissions we are talking about here? I'm running F14, kernel 22.214.171.124-72.fc14.x86_64, libvirtd 0.8.3
I had Fedora 8 installed in few clients and a server (same server for NFS and NIS), and NIS and NFS configured, and was working fine. Yesterday, I upgraded few client computers to Fedora 15 (server is still same), and configured NFS and NIS client. NFS is working fine, I can see home directories.
For NIS: ypwhich, ypcat passwd gives me correct uutput, ypbind is running. The problem is, I can't login to NIS client. The error is: Permission denied, please try again. My nssswitch.conf is
I wanted to install Matlab2011 in fedora15 and i receive this following: Preparing installation files Installing ./install: line 589: /tmp/mathworks_2110/java/jre/glnxa64/jre/bin/java: Permission denied Finished. I think the problem was Java, but I updated java and still is not working.
This is weird, today I updated my system and while trying to visudo from single user mode got
"cannot read /etc/shadow: Permission denied"
which kept me from doing anything until I switched to file permissions of 400 on shadow, then back. Is this being experienced by anyone else or just me? /etc/security/limits.conf doesn't seem like it wants to change in enforcing mode either and I can't find any alerts to provide clues on the situation.
I have a cron backup scheme in which I rsync, then tar, then copy files on my internal hard drives to an external (USB) drive. When it works, it works. But I often get a "Permission Denied" message for all of these tasks. how the external drive is auto-mounted so I edited the etc/fstab so that the owner of the cron job is also the owner of the external drive (I think. Unfortunately, I'm not at that machine right now (it's at work), I can't give the exact fstab line (I will post it as an update to this thread next time I am at the machine).) BUT, I still get times when the cron backup runs fine and other times I get the Permission Denied. This is a shared machine that is dual-booted, so what I *think* is going on is that when the machine is rebooted to Fedora, but nobody logs in, I get a Permission Denied for the cron backup. It seems like on days when someone has logged in as the main user and left without logging out that the cron backup runs fine.
I'm running Fedora 14, with a SATA interface CD/DVD drive and I'm attempting to run an installation script on a CD for an embedded Linux learning kit.Logged in as root (su), I receive:bash : /media/EmbeddedLinux/install_tools Permission DeniedI have searched and see similar situations on the web, but not exactly the same.I cannot resolve this issue using chmod, and find no relevant exec rights set in /etc/fstab.Using mount I find the (automounted) CD drive on /dev/sr0.I've searched quite a bit but never could find the thread that was supposedly listed in this forum.I understand that I should be able to copy the contents of the folder to my machine, then execute, but if possible I would prefer to address the real cause, not go around it.Also, where on earth will I find the location of whatever is affecting the ability to execute from an automounted media?
