i have 3 shares on my samba. i have users - user, manager and boss projects is RW to everyone reference is R to everyone RW to manager and boss Proposals is RW only to boss, no access to others However when boss logs in and creates a directory in projects share, the directory can only be renamed bu users and manager, and directory contents are read only for users and managers, even deletion / rename is denied. How can i make sure that when ever boss creates a directory in projects, it retains base folder permissions and is writable to user this is my samba file... i am using red hat 6.1 with samba 3.5.6 (i think)
I've created a new user for a SSH tunnel only.After login I can access all directories because permissions is set for "Others" to "Access files".Now my question: Is this normal that permissions for Folder access for "Others" is always set to "Access files"?I don't want my SSH tunnel user accessing the directories.
I'm trying to figure out how to access the local part and the domain part of an email address in postfix's main.cf. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org has myname as the local part and mydomain.net as the domain part.I get the whole email address with %s. I want to speed up the lookups by writing better database queries.I've had no luck finding this in the otherwise well documented postfix.

I have applied a patch in linux kernel version-2.6.31(fedora core 12)source code.Now I want to check whether the performance of the memory management part has been enhanced. So how to test the efficiency of this new modified code?
I changed my permissions in my .ssh folder and now when I use a piece of software that uses my private key, I have to type my password each time. What should my permissions be on my id_rsa file to not have to type a password each time I use an app that uses it?
I need a webserver (LAMP) running inside a virtual machine (#1) running as a service (#2) in headless mode (#3) with part or the whole file system encrypted (#4).The virtual machine will be started with no user intervention and provide access to a web application for users in the host machine. Points #1,#2 and #3 are checked and proved to be working fine with Sun VirtualBox, so my question is for #4:Can I encrypt all of the file system and still access the webserver (using a browser) or will GRUB ask me for a password?If encrypting all of the file system is not an option, can I encrypt only /home and /var/www? Will Apache/PHP be able to use files in /home or /var/www without asking for a password or mounting these partitions manually?
Recently updated the kernel in Ubuntu 9.10 and for some reason now, a folder which was not read-only now is. I can't delete anything from it. Have tried using the GUI for changing permissions, however, it has a mind of it's own and won't unlock the folder.
Anyone had this happen where a folder locked when you didn't want it to be?

I'm trying to learn about permissions on linux webserver with apache.Some clues to the system: The server I have to play around with is Fedora based. Apache runs as apache:apache. To allow for e.g. php to write to a file the file needs to be chmod 777. 755 is not sufficiant.What I'm wondering is basically how set up permissions like they should be on e.g. a "shared web host".My main problem is that if I set a permission so that one user cannot access anothers home folder, then apache can't read from the public_html folder either.
To keep the users out I need to set chmod 700. But to let apache to read I need to have at least execute on world,so a 701 basically works, but won't let some users in.So I'm really stuck on what to do. Have been concidering adding the apache user to the frous grours below to avoid having to add the world execute flag, but is that a bad thing? Should it be the other way around, the users in the groups below should also be in the apache group?I was aiming at having 4 groups:
1. webapp: same as dev_int, but is the only one that can go inside the webapp/live folder to e.g. do an update from the repo.
2. dev_int: can read,write and execute everything in the "web root", including the two below, but nothing outside of the web root
3. dev_ext: can read write and execute in all client folders, but cannot access anything outside of the webapp root
4. clientsBasic ftp accounts. Has a home folder with a public_html, but cannot access any other home folders
I own an Acer Aspire One which has Linpus Lite installed. Last night I attempted to delete a couple of files only to find they are read only and that I cannot change the permissions by right clicking and changing the drop down menu from read only.
These aren't protected files or anything, they are files I've downloaded or created myself (one using the onboard web cam to test it).
I attempted to play with Terminal for a bit but as a newbie I got easily lost, not like I can fall back on command prompt knowledge from Windows!
I think it's somehow connected with the user which accesses these docs or tries to change the permissions. I also tried with an su- which meant I was using Terminal as root, however, I wasn't sure how I could then set the permissions for a particular file/folder within the file system.
I am trying to rescue some files on a Dell Laptop running XP that is in a BSOD state. I can boot up Knoppix just fine but all the files are read only but get the error: The remount command failed. Maybe there is another process accessing the filesystem currently.Also when I look at the files and folders on the Knoppix CD they look really odd. See attachment
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.
I have Ubuntu server with Apache 2, PHP, and various DBMSs running in VirtualBox on my Mac host for my web development work. To easily create/edit the files I'm working on, I mounted a directory from my Mac host via the VirtualBox shared directory feature to /var/www/. Every file I create on my Mac host has the following permissions on the on the Server: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 6 2011-07-30 01:27 test.The problem is that most PHPscripts/frameworks/etc.need write access to some files.It is extremely annoying to have to chmod every new file/directory that needs write access.Is there a way to set the correct permissions for the files/directories automatically?
I accidentally changed my user permission while setting up a new user account and am now unable to access the "system" on the panel to change things back. I've just spent hours setting everything up and downloading and hope that I don't have to go through all of that again.
I have a directory that needs to be owned by nginx user and I need to access it via other users in order to add/edit/delete files in it. So I created a group called www and added both then chgrp -R on the directory. However I am still getting a "unavailable to access no permissions" sort of error in my SSH/SCP/what ever you want to call Mac's Transmit. ls -a output drwxr----- 3 nginx www 4096 Jul 17 23:56 nginx
when you attache a pen drive with windows you can drag from the pen drive to the desk top, and visa versa. with Linux logged in as normal user I can drag files from pen drive to Desktop but not the other way around. my pen drive is TITANIUM and at /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/TITANIUM so I have to use
cp /home/user/Desktop/file /media/TITANIUM as root
If I log in as root I can drag files from pen drive to desktop and also from Desktop to pen drive. is there an easy way to give permissions for normal user. I had a look a groups and it has scanner, printer etc listed ,can I amend groups somehow to enable same permissions for pen drive access as root?
I own a particular file on a Linux system. I would like to give 2 groups (accounting, shipping) read access and only read access, and 3 users(Mike, Raj and Wally) write access and only write access. How can I accomplish this?
I've hit a wall here; I'm attempting to find some way by which to view files and cd into directories on a device mounted read-only. So I need the permissions to read, write, execute (and the same with directories), but chmodding is out of the question because I don't want to alter the drive one iota.
I guess what I could do--what I was thinking of initially--was to dupe the whole drive and then mess with permissions. This wouldn't affect the original (actually I'm working on a duplicate of the original, but I'm treating it as if it were the original) but I was hoping for something that would maintain data integrity. This is a forensic application and not altering the data is very important.
I am doing a dist-upgrade from 8.04LTS to 8.09. I use usb KVM switch, and I keep my eye on it so that I can respond to the usual configuration file prompts that pop up. For a while everything went fine, but suddenly I find that I can't use the keyboard to log in and check the progress (the mouse is completely unresponsive). Here's the kicker though: the computer is fine. I can use 'Ctrl-Alt F1' through F7, and the computer responds appropriately; it just doesn't do anything when the login screen is up.
I checked the /var/log/dist-upgrade/term.log, and if I understand it correctly, whether or not to keep /etc/mysql/my.conf is currently up for question. Is there any way to take back control of the computer without interrupting the upgrade? Not knowing very much about the install process, it seems like the GUI stopped polling for input.
