General :: Chmod: Changing Permissions Of Public_html: Operation Not Permitted

Apr 6, 2010

I run a small site and today I've discovered that my site is down. I found that cPanel has flagged the account suspended even though I haven't got any quotas on the account. I don't know what went wrong. I've tried to unsuspend the account in WHM but a certain part of the function failed.


safe_userchgid: chown: /home/crocbits/public_html: Operation not permitted at /scripts/cPScript/ line 93.

After searching the internet someone mentioned that the problem might lie in the permissions of the public_html folder. I had a look at the permissions and the folder had no permissions d----- When I try to chmod the folder I get this error:


chmod: changing permissions of `public_html': Operation not permitted

I have no idea what to do next. All the files in the directory are locked too. I tried to move them but this command isn't allowed either. I ran these commands under the 'root' user in SSH.

Programming :: Netbeans And Permissions - "ioperm Error: Operation Not Permitted"

Aug 2, 2010

I am developing a java application that deals with the parallel port I used the parport library, I have the following problem: I am using netbeans 6.9 and linux redhat, when I run the code (java code that controls parallel port) from netbeans I get: "ioperm error: Operation not permitted" I used the "clean and build" function in Netbeans to create the jar file (test.jar) then I changed the permission of the test.jar to root using this command "chmod 4777 test.jar" and the test.jar file worked just fine as a stand alone file, but I still get the same error message when I try to run the program from Netbeans

General :: Chroot Error - Cannot Change Root Directory To /jail - Operation Not Permitted

Apr 18, 2011

I am trying to create a jailed shell for a user Don($UID '500') using my own method(I don't want to use any ready-made "jailkit"). The user don should get a home directory /jail/don instead of /home/don when he login via SSH (So that he will not able to see any other files/directories on the system)

This is what I have done.



It works without any issue ....Home directory changes to /jail/don when I ssh to the system as user don. ie: #ssh don@

Then I added a chroot command to this code.


Unfortunately , now I am getting an error message saying that "chroot: cannot change root directory to /jail: Operation not permitted" .. I am not sure how to rectify this error... Is my approach correct to get a jailed shell using /etc/profile file ?

Ubuntu Security :: Setfacl: /var/www: Operation Not Permitted

Jul 24, 2011

I'm trying to setup ACL (access control lists) on my /var/www folder so myself and my roommate can work on a site together. I've installed ACL and added the acl option to fstab for the root (/), but whenever I try to setfacl, I still get


setfacl: /var/www: Operation not permitted

I can however share folders in my /home directory so I guess it has to be that /var isn't getting the ACL option. Here is my fstab file:


proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid,acl 0 0
/dev/mapper/franklin-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro,acl 0 1
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 defaults,acl 0 2
/dev/mapper/franklin-swap_1 none

What am I missing?

Debian :: Ping: Sendmsg: Operation Not Permitted

Feb 16, 2010

I couldn't install everything during setup of my debian server, so I installed post setup through the Add/Remove Programs. My guess is there is so much installed that either DHCP is not setup properly or there is a firewall installed. My computer found an IP address from my router but cannot connect to the DNS service or ping my router. I type: ping computer resp: "ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted"

Ubuntu :: Warning: GDB: Failed To Set Controlling Terminal: Operation Not Permitted

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, and I am having problems with GDB. When I attempt to debug a C program in kdbg or codeblocks, the output terminal will display this message: "warning: GDB: Failed to set controlling terminal: Operation not permitted" I have searched quite a bit and I have not found a fix that works.

I am running gnome, but the KDE files installed by Synaptic are version 3.5.10
I have KDBG version 2.1.1

I have CodeBlocks 8.02-0ubuntu4

If anybody needs any more information in order to give ideas or knowledge on how to fix this just let me know

Software :: Online Resize2fs: Operation Not Permitted While Trying To Add Group #14080?

Aug 22, 2010

I am running Oracle Enterprise Linux x64 5.5 on an HP Proliant DL380 G6 attached to various SAN's via fibre channel. I have setup multipath, edited multipath.conf, lvm.conf, and after some trial and error, everything behaves and looks as it should in regard to multipath. However, when I try to resize a multipath ext3 lvm filesystem, The operation runs for a while, but then dies and I get the above error. I then see this error in /var/log/messages:

EXT3-fs warning (device dm-9): ext3_group_add: No reserved GDT blocks, can't resize

-I am only using the /dev/mapper/ paths to the filesystem (ie, resize2fs /dev/mapper/testvol-lvol1 128G)
-if I unmount the filesystem, resize2fs works fine
-Have tried removing and re-adding journal file via tune2fs with no luck
-The VG has plenty of room in it and is composed of a 100GB and 200GB partition.
-Inode resize is on in the filesystem

I am wondering if online resize2fs is only for small filesystems or not recommended as a best practice or just not generally done??? As I mentioned, the operation works fine offline if I unmount the filesystem, but this won't be an option once system is in production.

Debian Configuration :: LDAP Auth Newgrp Setgid - Operation Not Permitted?

Jun 10, 2010

LDAP authentication problem on debian squeeze? To my knowledge, I have everything setup properly to do ldap authentication + local authentication on a host. I can login as a local user. I can login as an LDAP user.

When I log in as an LDAP user, my primary group is set properly. It is an LDAP group. I can change the group ownership of files to LDAP groups using chgrp. So far so good. This all works as expected. The commands getent passwd and getent group work wondefully, and generate the expected results. I can newgrp to any *local* group, but if I try to newgrp to an ldap group, I get the following error:

setgid: Operation not permitted. I've tried googling and asked on #debian on No luck.

mount: /dev/sda10 already mounted or /mnt busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/sda10 is already mounted on /mnt


I also ran a whereis for bash and it also is there

Ubuntu Networking :: Cifs: Setting Times Of `file1': Operation Not Permitted?

For an illustration see below:

General :: Chmod Doesn't Change Permissions On Files In Subdirs

May 15, 2011

I have a Qnap 219p NAS to which I have connected a USB external harddrive. I can access the external harddrive from my windows box using the network share, but at first i couldn't access the folders. The permissions set in the NAS GUI for the external drive is correct and are identical to the permissions set to the 2 internal drives.

I ssh'ed to the nas and used 'chmod -R 770 /share/external/sds1' - this granted me access to the folders, and some files. I can open all files in the root, but if I go just 2 folders 'deeper', i can't open the files in this folder, and in the folders after that.

In ssh, if i navigate to the folder wher I cannot open the files and use 'ls -l', i can see that the permissions (770) hasn't been applied to these files. How can I get chmod to apply the 770 permission to all files, folders, subfolders and files in subfolders etc., without having to chmod every folder one by one?

General :: File-permissions On Read-only Media: Allowing For Access Without Chmod?

Mar 14, 2010

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.
