General :: Setting Sticky Bit Recursively Only On Directories

Jun 23, 2010

I have a folder that contains my group's website. The ownership of the entire directory is set to "www-data.website" (website being a group). I want to set the sticky bit on this directory such that if anyone creates a new file, either in the main directory or subdirectories, the ownership remains like above.

Q1: I have the sticky bit set on the main directory (drwxrwsr-x). But for some reason, some of the subdirectories don't have the sticky bit set. Is there a command I can use to change the sticky bit on Directories Only (i.e., not on the files)?
Q2: Is there a sticky bit that I can set for the ownership (not group) so that it is always set to www-data?

General :: Make All Files Non-executable Recursively Using Find Without Affecting Directories?

Sep 26, 2010

I need to strip the executable flag from all files within a certain directory and sub directories. Right now I'm doing it with a 2 step process

find /dir/ -type f -exec chmod ugo-x {} ;
find /dir/ -type d -exec chmod ugo+rx {} ;

Is it possible to modify the first line so that I can strip exec flag from all non-directory files? Since this needs to be done on a fairly regular basis across a lot of directories and files, I'd prefer not to use a bash script which would slow it down.

General :: Sticky Situation Bcos Of Sticky Bit

Feb 21, 2011

Situation is that there are two users on a Linux server- say A and B.A has been operating a shell script that in turn makes use of and exe file.The script and exe both are owned by user A.My problem is that I want user B to make use of the script and exe in exactly the same way user A does.So I have set suid bit of the script, exe and all the library files that the exe uses.But the exe is still not executing from user B.I did a man of chmod on Linux server and it gave an indication that SUID is disabled on new Linux servers.Now the question is, is there any other command that can perform the same task as SUID did on Unix.

General :: Replace ":" From Multiple Files Names - Even Recursively In Directories

Jan 31, 2010

I need to replace ":" from multiple files names, since I am going to copy those files from a linux partition, which admit the ":" to a FAT32 partition, which does not.

Example:
original name: eg06_ana_21-05-06_09:21:03.JPG
wished name: eg06_ana_21-05-06_09-21-03.JPG

I have googled a lot but I have not been able to adapt the examples given by people to my aim.

It seems that rename command is what I should use, but I have no idea to build the correct pearl expression.

General :: Setting Differing ACLs On Directories And Files

Aug 25, 2010

Quick ACL question: I want to set up default permissions for a file share so that everyone can rwx all of the directories and so that all newly created files are rw. Everyone who is accessing this share is in the same group, so this isn't a concern. I have looked at doing this via ACLs without changing all of the users' umasks and such. Here are my current invocations:

setfacl -Rdm g:mygroup:rwx share_name
setfacl -Rm g:mygroup:rwx share_name

My problem is that while I want all of the newly created sub-directories to be rwx, I only want newly created files to be rw. Does anyone have a better method to achieve my desired end-result? Is there some way to set ACLs on directories separately from files, in a similar vein to "chmod +x" vs. "chmod +X"?

Software :: Command Line: Chown Command Recursively On Invisible Directories?

Oct 25, 2010

I tried

Code:

chown -R owner:group *

which does not work on the invisible directories (why?). When I used ".*" as wildcard it changed all (visible) files including the parent directory (the one I was currently working in which is the "dot") . I can change the invisible directories owner and group using dophin but how is it done from the command line?

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?

Fedora Servers :: Setting Directories (But Not Contents) As Read Only In Samba

Apr 8, 2011

So I finally managed to get my Samba file server working () but now I have a question. On the server I have 4 folders, each being used for a certain topic. How would I set the folders as read only but not the contents, so that way remote users can read/write to the folder but can't delete or rename the folder itself? Also, if I restart the Linux box it will cease to show on the Windows Network unless I delete the Samba share and remake.

General :: How To Recursively Copy Directory Into Another One

Apr 25, 2011

I moved to Mac OS X recently and bumped into the "feature" of Mac where copying files from an external drive resets the file modification/update date/timestamp to the current date (which Windows does not), causing a disaster for my 10+ years of backup work files where date is important. So, before I learned how to avoid that (e.g. using the -p "preserve" flag in the "cp" copy command) I have in the meantime added to my new Mac hard drive many more files as well as updating existing old files.

I have a backup external hard drive with all my old data and proper modification dates. I have a Mac hard drive with reset modification file dates (a single or two particular days). The Mac hard drive has all the "true" and "current" file contents with files modified and added. I need to Copy all the original files from the external harddrive, preserving file metadata (really only modified date), but ONLY overriding the new internal Mac hard drive IF

The file contents (md5 or whatever) is the same or The file was updated after the day (which of course I can see on all files) on which the original disasterous cope was performed (implying the file is new or modified) Ensure the copy leaves all the new and modified files completely intact on the Mac internal hard drive. "No prompting/stopping of the copy of any kind (i.e., not verbose) is required but is o.k". "Recursive copy - obviously I would like to copy all* files folders and subfolders found in export".

General :: Recursively Count All The Files In A Directory?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a really deep directory tree on my Linux box. I would like to count all of the files in that path, including all of the subdirectories.

For instance, given this directory tree:

/home/blue
/home/red
/home/dir/green
/home/dir/yellow
/home/otherDir/

If I pass in /home, I would like for it to return 4 files. Or, bonus points if it returns 4 files, 2 directories. Basically, I want the equivalent of right-clicking a folder on Windows and selecting properties and seeing how many files/folders are contained in that folder.

How can I most easily do this? I have a solution involving a Python script I wrote, but why isn't this as easy as running ls | wc or similar?

General :: Recursively Mount File Shares?

Oct 18, 2010

I have a Linux machine that shares some files through NFS. The shared directory is:

/foo

I then mounted a shared directory (from a Windows machine) to:

/foo/bar

/foo/bar is mounted successfully onto the Linux machine and everything is there. However any other machine that mounts /foo from the Linux machine everything is correctly there except /foo/bar is empty. Is there anyway to do a "recursive mount" of file shares. Here is the /etc/fstab entry for the Windows share mount of /foo/bar //windows_machine/share /foo/bar cifs username=user,password=pass 0 0 And the /etc/fstab entry on the client machines that mount /foo server:/foo /foo nfs rw 0 0

General :: Get The Last Change Time Of Directory Recursively

May 28, 2011

How can I get the last time any of the files in a directory or its subdirectories has changed?
e.g

Dir - changed 1/1/1
Sub Dir 1 - changed 2/1/1
Sub Dir 2 - changed 3/1/1
File 1 - changed 10/1/1
File 2 - change 5/1/1


The output for this for Dir should be 10/1/1 (File 1 was the last modified one). Getting the last file name to be modified is a bonus but isn't necessary.

General :: List Contents Of All Files Recursively?

Jan 22, 2011

What I would like to do is to print the contents of all text files in a particular directory, recursively. Problem being that there are directories and possibly binaries scattered around in the filesystem as well.

Trying cat * works as long as there are no directories in there, but when there are it gives an error instead and prints nothing.

I'm sure it's easy using file -f or something but I can't figure it!
