Fedora Servers :: Afpfs-ng Doent Give Unix Permissions
Jul 1, 2010
Unix permissions 000 given to directories.I m testing Netatalk 2.0.5 on my fedora machine with afpfs-ng. I m using afpcmd command to access the volumes on the netatalk server. the directories that i m creating via afpcmd are being created with permissions 000. I cannot browse thru them.
I have a laptop with a 250gb drive. It is partitioned in the following way.
Vista 80gb Ubuntu 40gb Data 121 gb (Formatted as NTFS)
And I have a Windows 7 computer I have Samba installed on Ubuntu 9.10 and I can see the Windows7 computer from my Ubuntu laptop. However I can not see my Ubuntu partition or the Data partition over the network. How do I give permission for the Data partition, which is NTFS and the Home partition on Ubuntu?
how do i give full permissions to my account? At the moment i'm logged onto root so i can create files / folders in my LAMP folder (/opt/lampp/htdocs) i've right click on the folder and gone to the permissions tab and give the ownership to my account (Kevin) but it still doesnt let me create files or folders? i just want to give my account full permissions to every folder!
How can I give an application group permissions?There is a bug in the latest version of Ubuntu's Dovecot, where it is not apart of mail group, so it does not have write permission to the /var/mail directory by default. So I have to give it mail group permissions.
On Windows, you can go to a file's permissions and it's clearly stated who can do what. You can choose between individual users or groups such as 'everyone' or certain types of users such as 'domain users'. You could create a clear cut list of every single user/group on the system and what their permissions for a file are and have it neatly displayed in a list.On Unix, we have octal permissions and sticky bits. I understand the whole concept of rwxrwxrwx (777). The first three are what the file owner can do, the second is what the main group the user belongs to can do, and the third is what other users can do.
But, when you view a file's permissions you are only getting the permissions as they apply to the user that owns the file. For example, as I understand it, if I viewed a file that only the root user had rwx permissions on and everyone else could only read. The permissions would show up as rwxr--r-- (744). But, those same permissions would show up to any user as 744 as well. Since the last 3 characters are what applies to "other users" (pretty vague). How would someone know what users in particular those permissions apply to? There could be one "other user" that can rwx that file and another "other user" that can't.Also, why just stop with the main group? What about other groups? A the user Foo's main group he belongs to might be Foo. But he could also belong to the groups Boo and Zoo, which belong to other users and would give him full rwx permissions over Boo and Zoo's files just as if he were Boo or Zoo.
Then you have the whole sticky bit thing that makes it so that files can be owned by the same person and at the same time be made use of (to varying degrees) by other users. To chmod the UID you'd chmod 2777 or for GID 4777 (just an an example). I did this for a file and it allowed a standard user account who was previously unable to run the command to be able to run it. But, how can that work when I didn't anywhere specify what particular user (or groups of users) that sticky bit applies to?
I'm confused about this whole thing to the point that I'm not even sure exactly what questions I should be asking or even if my examples are even 100% correct. I just sort of ranted about some specific things that floated to the top of my head. Permissions are easy to understand when your running a Unix-like system on a single user desktop. Because the only users/groups you have are root, the single user, and various system users/groups that you don't really need to worry about. So a file with rwxr--r-- means that only the Root user (not even members of his group) can edit the file and you can't unless you use sudo. Because the "other user" in the last 3 characters always just means you. But, things seem to get a whole lot more complicated when you start adding in multiple users. Can someone explain this or link to a "for dummies" article that can explain all of this to me in a way that someone who's used to Windows style permissions can make a connection between the two OS families and their way of handling these things?
I have a folder in a Samba shared drive which I've done the following with (in Unix):
1. Changed owner to Administrator. 2. Changed group owner to Domain Users. 3. Granted 700 (drwx------) permissions 4. Connected to Windows server via remote desktop 5. Mapped the Samba network drive as administrator 6. Right clicked on the folder > properties > security tab > advanced, and added one person (let's call him Joe) who has rwx access on that folder and everything in it. (along with administrator) 7. Went back to check Unix permissions on the folder and found that they had changed from drwx to drwxrwx+. Same goes for everything inside it. 8. Checked the ACL.
I have a web application which calls scripts on the linux box it's deployed on. Currently, there are some file permission issues which prevent the scripts from running properly. How can I give my web application the needed permissions? I thought of creating a user 'group' , assigning my web app to that group, and changing the ownership of the script files to the new group. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with the following: What user id does my web app have? If my web app does not have an user id,
how do i give group write permissions in fstab? i'm trying to mount a virtualbox shared folder. currently my fstab looks like this Code: Share_Name /mnt/point vboxsf rw,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0 i want to give both the owner and group, write permissions. currently, only the owner has write permissions, and group read with these mount options.
I have recently secured a server by preventing root from logging in via SSH. Now I log in with a non-root account and use 'su' when necessary.However, now I can't do something I used to do, which is open 'sftp://user@ipaddress' in nautilus and be able to edit files as root. Is there anyway to get nautilus to give me root permissions on the server? Or at least end up with root permissions in a GUI text editor on my computer? I don't mind if I have to use bash to start the process, once I can get a GUI for editing files.
Note 1: Yes, I realize I could ssh in and use nano/vi etc, but I'd rather use my graphical text editor. Note 2: The server does not run X, so I can't just forward it.
Just finished downloading a game in .run format, i downloaded it to my Home>Downloads folder and ran these commands in terminal: (game is tremulous if it matters)
chmod +x tremulous.run ./tremulous.run
It started it up in the terminal and i began working my way through the installation process, and i tried to install it into my Home>Games folder. (Is it supposed to be home>games or your username>games?)
and it said PERMISSION DENIED. No write permission to Home/Games/
How do i give myself read and write permissions to my game folder?

There is a folder that is owned by user tomcat6: drwxr-xr-x 2 tomcat6 tomcat6 69632 2011-05-06 03:43 document. I want to allow another user (ruser) write permissions on document folder. The two users (tomcat6 and ruser) does not belong to same group. I have tried using setfacl: sudo setfacl -m u:ruser:rwx document
but this gives me setfacl: document: Operation not supported error.
This morning my NFS shares mount but permissions are all NOBODY NOBODY. If I ssh to the server to check the drive(s) permissions are all as they should be! Exports there are fine as is my local fstab. I hope I am just suffering and update glitch because they usually go-away in a subsequent update.
I just spent an hour and a half trying to track it down with no success - time to give up before I do real damage (to which I am prone ).
I have a web server set up, and for a while I just let it show the default "test" page, but now I am wanting to actually show something of my own.
I downloaded a couple templates from the internet (free ones), and copied the first one to the /var/www/html folder (including subfolders for ./images and such), and it used an index.php file, but when viewing in my browser, it showed the actual text of the file, not the graphics and images and stuff.
So I deleted those files and "installed" the second template, which uses an index.html file instead.
I am once again getting the default "Apache is running but not configured" page again, even though I have verified multiple times that the index.html file is located in /var/www/html
if I include the index.html file in the path to my website, I get a 403 Forbidden, so I'm thinking it has to do with file ownership or permissions.
I placed the files there as "root", and have tried several combinations of possible permissions (root:root is the owner:group) without any luck.
my when i boot my ubuntu 8.10 i get only xterm failsafe ,however failsafe Gnome does open , i have tried several solutions from the web such as deleting .profile file and some other solutions but none works.here's my .xsession-errors file

I'm rather new to Fedora server, but I'm attempting to run a music FTP server, where anonymous users can submit songs into one particular folder (so i can personally tag them), while other user accounts have full read-write. Here we go: I 2 directories, /music and /untagged
I want anonymous users to be able to read both directories, but only be able to upload to /untagged, and not be able to delete anything. I want users that I select to have full read-write-create-delete privileges. how would I go about this with vsftpd?
How can I set permissions for users within the share? Example: I have a share called Programming and some user can create folders within it most others can not, can read the documents. How do I set permissions?
I've created a mysql user and he can connect Joomla to mysqld when everyone has full permissions to the mysql homedir but I know this is bad from a security standpoint. If I set mysql user as the only one with permissions then I can't connect. I know Joomla support is not very help from past experience, wish I could dump it for something else but it does work great once it is configured so I need to keep it around, can anyone make a guess as to what permissions I need to have set on mysql's home dir so that joomla can still connect yet I am more secure than now?
With F11 installed Apache is having permissions issues reading files out of the html directory. Only wants to work with permissions set to read for other. [Thu Jun 11 23:25:28 2009] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: file permissions deny server access: /var/www/html/index.html Tracked down the permissions issue. Is there a good reason not to change the group to apache and remove world read?
I've got my Samba shares up and running. I can stream files from the server, I can create files on the server, and I can copy files from the server.
Running a Windows program (from a Windows box) directly from the Samba server, however, is turning into a nightmare. I'm getting Access is Denied errors from the Windows box, yet I can copy/create/etc from the entire directory with no problems.
Are there any special permissions I need to run EXE files from a Windows box, located on a Samba share? I've already chmod'd everything to 777, and I show full access when ls -Z is used.
a small lab of linux servers contains two servers. the administrator wishes to permit user settings and project files to be available when users log in on any machine descibe the server processes needed on the servers
I want to have /boot as an ext2 (I don't need journaling and I might want to undelete something) and all other partitions in an LVM.When the server starts it will prompt me for the LVM password. I would like to be able to contact the server using SSH (or using another secure method) and tell the password. Since /usr/sbin and all the other partitions are inside the LVM I guess I have a problem?
Is it possible to setup something like this? The SSH session for the LVM authentication does not have to be a daemon. It can be something which just sits and waits until I connect and input the password. And then the "real" SSH deamon kicks in.
