I put this file in cgi-bin folder of Apache server. Here is my problem : when I run this file with shell as root user it makes change to iptables, but when I use my browser to run this file, it doesn't make any change. I'm sure this is because Apache doesn't have permission to manipulate iptables. How can I start Apache as a user with root privileges ?
We have installed apache 2.2.15 webserver on A rhel 5 Linux 64 box using the user wwwadm group www
We can start the webserver using root and it works fine but we dont have root access forever so we want the wwwadm user to have all the rights and we can start/stop/restart the Apache server using this wwwadm user.
I have a normal user (sites:users) and the usual http user (wwwrun:www).I'm hosting several sites and I want to be able to upload stuff via ftp, so I'm using the "sites" home (/home/sites) to keep the sites I'm hosting. Giving read permissions to all inside /home/sites makes it accessible and readable to the wwwrun user. Problems come when I need to upload something. The easy way is to give 777 permissions to the folder that's going to receive the file, but I don't feel comfortable at all with that.
What do you recommend? Is there any group configuration that could help me (like adding "sites" to the "www" group)? Or any other configuration at all that might be according the the best practices?
I'm using ubuntu 10.04. Apache server is associated with www-data.I frequently run into problems editing or deleting files created by a cgi script, as they have ownership of www-data:www-data.How can I safely modify my system so that the output files are editable or deletable by user tim?
Apache is set to start on runlevel 2, 3 and 5, just like MySQL. For some obscure reason this always fails. I tried resetting the runlevels, but this did not help and I always have to start apache manually after reboot.
How can I analyze this problem? In the Apache logs I don't find the cause. Is there an other log I can check?
Is there a way to grant 'root' privileges to my user account? My account name ... I'll call it 'masterskop' as it is my forum name here, but not on my computer.Would it look like this in the sudoers' file?My purpose is to get access to all the folders and files in the 'File System'. The root and lost+found folders have 'Xs' on them...No access! And for example, under properties of the 'var' folder it states that 'you are not the owner, so you cannot change these permissions.' How can I get access to all of it everytime I login as the main user of my computer? I do not have anyone else using this computer.I did edit this file and used my real user name ... logged out and logged back in and still I do not have access/edit these folders and files.
How to allow access to some commands having root privleges to be run by non root user. I am new to unix/linux and I have a major assignment. I have to find ways to run particular commands which can be run only by root from a non root user. I know sudo is one of the way but i need some different approach.
i am trying to recover some files on a partition through the ubuntu live cd (they are hidden files and i can't find anything else that would work) and it said i needed root privaleges in order to copy them. is this possible and how do i do it
I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.
I Installed the maintained package, Day one everything worked fine, I set a dummy database and work on it from VM windows. Day two weird errors, I searched around couldn't find the problem, the error was related to The root user losing privileges. I don't remember the exact error. So I decided to Completely remove the DB with apt-get remove mysql-Server-5.1. It gets stuck during the uninstall, I left the machine for a day and a half to uninstall mysql. I realized it was no use, I tried to Restart and try again, but I am getting the same thing.

I can't progress I am at the brink now, my only option right now is format, but I don't wanna do that. This setup is almost 5 years old and I have gone with many ups and downs with it. From Windows to 8.04 to 8.10 to 9.04 to 9.10 to now 10.04 each year loving the resilience of Ubuntu and the Linux architecture. I don't want to believe that this has killed my spree.
Figured out a straight shot at connecting to the Internet in Fedora 15. Follow these commands.
1.)****** SWITCH TO ROOT USER if you don't have privileges******* 2.) cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts 3.) rm ifcfg-XXXXX (DO NOT REMOVE THE IFCFG-LO) 4.) system-config-network
-> Once in this screen, press the enter key on "Device configuration" -> Configure your network statically. ( I did the following.) Name: leave as default Device: Leave as default DESELECT "Use DHCP" Set Static IP as 192.168.2.117 (or 192.168.1.117) Set NetMask as 255.255.255.0 Set "Default Gateway IP" AND "Primary DNS Server" to 192.168.2.1 (or 192.168.1.1)
In our group we use NIS and have a group set up called netadmin which is given root privileges on each machine. Each machine also has a localuser called localuser created and used during installation. When logged in as a member of netadmin, attempting any action that requires root privileges (e.g. installing software in Ubuntu Software Center) results in a prompt asking for localuser's password, not the current user's password.
Does anyone know the cause? Configuration issue or Ubuntu issue? We can get around it.
I manage to get my mobile broadband working (connected, I mean) in both root & user account. However, my web browser, IM etc only work in root account.In user, knetworkmanager does show that my Huawei E160G is working fine, connected but I still can't surf the net & chat. I've included the dialout & uucp group for user account but that still doesn't resolve the problem
I run ProFTPd with TLS authentication on my Debian Lenny server. My problem is that despite of the fact that my users connect chrooted, one of my friends had root privileges after logging in form a Macintosh and could browse the root directory, too.
This applies to users of 10.04 (64 bit), but I would like to hear from those running 10.04 (32 bit) and 9.10 (64 or 32 bit).Would you be good enough to answer this question: Do you have an �enable scanner option� (or a variation of that phrase) in (GOTO) System-Administration-Users & Groups- [Your Admin Account]- Advanced Settings- User Privileges?It would be immensely helpful of you if you could do this and post me your answer.
Recently after upgrading my kernel (via /repositories/Base:/Kernel/standard) I have had issues with the network not starting properly on bootup. The kernel is 100% SUSE-patched and behaves perfectly outside of that one issue. To get the network to "start" (DHCP issued, eth0 brought up) I have to 'rcnetwork start' in a shell. I've checked to make sure my config is right in both ifcfg-eth0 and 'config' for /etc/sysconfig/network, but nothing affects the outcome.
How do I get the boot scripts to bring up eth0 and issue a DHCP on startup?
Here's the output of 'rcnetwork start -o debug fake':
All of as now the add-to-panel item that via it you can shutdown the PC without the need of typing any password to gain root privileges.
How is this possible? I know that fro default the login screen is run by root but how do this app sends the signal to the login-screen to shutdown? I mean, this app is run without root privileges by me, the simple user, and when clicked the PC shutdowns via a signal from this app to the login screen.... How can I call this signal to an app of mine?
I am basically on a Fedora 8 but I have some of my files on telnet machine, to which I can log on. There I don't have root privileges though. How can I transfer files from that machine to my machine, using ftp or some other mechanism?
