Fedora :: Mount Windows Shared Folder / How To Change Ownership?

Aug 18, 2011

I mounted a shared windows folder from my LAN, and I changed the mount point's ownership on Linux using command line `chown me:me windir`. but when I enter the mount point, and to create files, it mentioned me 'Permission denied', but the file is actually created on the windows' folder, and its ownership is root:root.
this problem puzzled my programs going to run on it. cause them will detect a system returned error, and terminate in a abnormal way.

Debian :: Wordpress Server Folder Ownership?

Feb 9, 2011

I've recently started setting up a new wordpress install on a new dedicated server. The system is installed on a linux debian 5 setup and running on apache.Having only ever run shared hosting before this setup is a much bigger leap than expected, but after a couple of weeks doing bits here and there I've finally got the setup running, and all appears ok.My issue is as follows:On the server the default owner of all the installed folders is "root"In order to allow media uploads, plugin installs and upgrades and wordpress auto-upgrades I've had to Chown the owner of the entire wordpress directory to the server as follows:Chown -R www-data:www-data /usr/share/wordpress/

Can anyone tell me if this is actually secure? (clearly if the server is compromised the folder would be writeable!) If not would I be better changing the owner back to root (or even creating a new user for the wordpress folder?), then chown just the uploads, theme, and blogs.dir folders to allow media uploads, upgrades, etc from with the wordpress, and then only chown the entire wordpress install when upgrading or installing new plugins, themes, etc.?Just a bit lost when it comes to the ownership of these folders as changing these ownerships is the only way i can get the system functioning 'correctly'

General :: Changing File And Folder Ownership From Root?

This question is linked to this one - [URL]

I have a folder /srv/app-share that needs to be visible/writeable to user1

I tried (as root):

Ubuntu :: Changed Folder Ownership - Filesystem Read Only

Jul 3, 2010

I accidentally changed etc., folder ownership, and now my computer doesn't even start up. I tried starting up in failsafe mode and changing the ownership from the root console, but somehow I wasn't allowed to do that. Then I loaded kubuntu from a live disk and I changed etc ownership to root. I thought that would clear up the mess, but apparently live disk's root is not equivalent to system's: when I try to start up the computer I get a message saying the filesystem is readonly. I'm not too concerned, because I have a complete backup, but I'd rather avoid the time of re-installing all my software again.

Ubuntu Security :: Encfs: Preserve Ownership On A Shared Encrypted Folder?

Mar 3, 2010

I would like to create an encrypted folder which can be shared by users included in the users group.To do so I used encfs:

Code:

cd somewhere
sudo mkdir encrypted visible
sudo chown root:users encrypted visible
sudo chmod 770 encrypted visible
encfs /somewhere/encrypted /somewhere/visible -o allow_other -o umask='007' -o uid='0'

Now if a user (included in users) creates a new document in the visible folder, that will be

Quote:

-rwxrwx--- 1 root users 0 2010-03-02 14:19 new file

While I would like it to be

Quote:

-rwxrwx--- 1 user users 0 2010-03-02 14:19 new file

Mounting encfs without the option uid='0' gives same results with only difference that instead of root the owner is the user who mounted encfs. Also copying a file owned by different user rather than root goes to the same: for example having in my home a file like

Quote:

-rwxr-x--- 1 me users 0 2010-03-02 14:30 myfile

and trying to copy it to the encrypted shared folder with

Code:

sudo cp -a -v ~/myfile /somewhere/visible

will give something like

Quote:

cp: failed to preserve ownership for `~/myfile': Operation not permitted

And the copied file on the shared encrypted folder will be as usual:

Quote:

-rwxrwx--- 1 root users 0 2010-03-02 14:30 myfile

Is there a way to mount encfs in order to preserve ownership?

OpenSUSE :: Can't Change Directory Ownership

Oct 9, 2010

I have my hard drive arranged with a single large ntfs data partition and a number of smaller partitions for /home etc. Here's the line in fstab:

Code:
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_HD103SJ_S246J9FZ806954-part2 /home/shmuck/data ntfs-3g users,gid=users,fmask=133,dmask=022,locale=en_US.UTF-8 0 0

But the ownership for that directory is root and I can't change it for some reason, using this line:

Code:
sudo chown -R shmuck /home/shmuck/data

It just doesn't do anything.

General :: How To Change Home Directory Ownership

Jun 24, 2011

I've already done the following commands

Code:
su
chown theif519 /home/theif519
chmod 775 /home/theif519
exit
#usermod -d /home/theif519 login

I've logged out and logged back in, and I was successful in making it the default directory it logs in to. Still, afterwards I noticed that that when I use the list all commands "ls -l" it shows that root owns it and it also shows that I do not, by default, have read write execute over it, only read execute. I'm using Slackware 13.37* in a Virtual Machine* Another thing, I don't think I added any rights to my user, how do I give it more rights as well? Like, wheel and sudo and all of that stuff. Also, this was the website I was using *Although it didn't help much, the comments sure did [URL].

Ubuntu :: Ownership & Permissions Change When Files Burned To DVD+RW?

Jan 18, 2010

After burning files to DVD+RW, the owner is changed to root, and all permissions are read only. I want to periodically open these files, update them, and save to the DVD again, but I no longer have permission and cannot change the permissions since I am no longer the owner. I tried sudo commands, but get responses "Read only file system". I have erased and reformatted the DVD and started over but get the same results.
I have Ubuntu 9.04, and have tried Brasero and Nautilus and get the same problem. Am I using the wrong kind of DVD/CD?

Ubuntu :: File Permissions / Ownership - Even Root Cannot Change

Aug 30, 2010

I have been VERY lucky and managed to restore from a formatted ext3 /home/ partition. I used testdisk to reset the original partition which had had nothing done to it since formatting(!). However some of the file permissions are a altered and I cannot change them. I have tried "su chmod" and even temporarily enabled the root account itself and tried to alter the ownership/permissions from root 'proper' without it helping.

Here is an example of the output of ls -l
drwxr-xr-x 2 martyn martyn 4096 (date) (time) sponsors
?-----S--T 63231 92820383 44090688 4286824785 (date) (time) order.xls

The first line looks like a normally formed output and indeed is readable. The second line looks corrupted and I don't have a clue how I can reclaim this - or even if it is possible. Should I count my blessings most of my files are intact and leave those be?

General :: Change Permissions And Ownership For NTFS Mounts?

Apr 19, 2011

I finally replaced my Windows with Linux.. However, I need to run applications and modify files that are on NTFS mounts. I am unable to change ownership, permissions, and groups on these files so I may modify them without having to copy. I have several times attempted to chmod, chgrp, chown, etc.. while logged-in as root user; however it is to no avail. The owner and permissions are still geared towards root. can I change ownership and permissions on NTFS files so I can modify them without having to convert/copy them over to ext4 or different file system?- Matbtw: I am using OpenSuse 11.4 and running Windows apps with VirtualBox (with Vista installation image). I still have Win7 on my computer (non-emulated) and I would like to keep some files on those NTFS partitions so when I occasionally need to boot into Win7 I can modify those files because Windows blows and doesn't support Linux.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Change Ownership Of Newly Installed Second Hard Drive

Jan 6, 2010

Recently, I decided to wipe my system, put in two 250GB hard drives and rebuild my home file and print server. One of the hard drives is a SATA drive, and the other is not. In any event, they are identified as /dev/sda and /dev/sdb in Gparted. So far so good.

Working on (reading from/writing to) the first hard drive (where the OS is installed) is no problem. However, I have had difficulty trying to get my system to recognize my second hard drive and then allow me (nate) to read and write to said second drive. I followed these directions from the ubuntu community web page during installation:

[URL]

and setup my second hard drive with an ext3 file system. The drive is /dev/sdb. The PARTITION is /dev/sdb1. The MOUNT POINT is /media/TheBase250.

The problem(s) begin at this point. I cannot:

1. Unmount the volume at my will-error says that only root can unmount

2. I am not sure if the command sudo chown -R nate:nate /media/TheBase250 allowed me to take full ownership of said drive. It appears as if nothing changes when I run this command in terminal (even when I am root) Moreover, I cannot give myself permission to read and write files to the drive.

3. However, when I open up nautilus, browse to "TheBase250", right-click in the corresponding "explorer" or "finder" window and look at the properties for the drive, it says that "nate" is the owner (under the permissions tab), but again, I cannot give myself FILE read/write capabilities, nonetheless anyone else. When I try, all that happens is the corresponding box goes back to displaying "---"

4. Interestingly, if I skip nautilus and double-click on the drive from my desktop, again, logged in as nate (only user account created) and then proceed to right-click on the window that opens up, click properties, half the time it says that I cannot make changes to the permissions because I am not "nate." Well, last time I checked, I am nate, and this is, albeit delinquent, my computer.

5. Another piece of information that may be helpful is that if I simply right-click on TheBase250 drive icon on my desktop itself, navigate to the permissions tab, the dialogue box says that "The permissions of "TheBase250" could not be determined"

Some additional information that may be helpful is the output from my fstab file. So, for your benefit, here is the output (the stars are not part of the file, but only to help improve readability):

************************************************** *****
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'vol_id --uuid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Ubuntu Servers :: Cannot Change File Ownership On NTFS Drive?

process of migrating my server to Ubuntu Server 11.04 after my Server 2003 installation suffered a HDD failure. All my data is on an NTFS drive (not ideal but not much I can do about that). I can currently only read the disk as a user. root has ownership of everything on the disk. Whenever I try and change ownership of a file it doesn't bring up any errors but when running ls -l it shows that nothing has actually changed.

Slackware :: Root User Can Not Change The Ownership Of A Hard Drive?

Apr 22, 2010

I have Slackware 12.2 installed on my computer, as well as a Windows Xp. I have a hard drive named '/fat-d', which is formatted to be 'fat' and is normally used under XP. This drive can also be accessed under Slackware, both as root and the normal user.I can not write to the directory '/fat-d' when I am not root, it is normal since 'ls -l' shows that its owner is root and other users have no permission to write. The problem is that, when I tried (as root) to change the owner to the normal user:# chown [normal_user_name] /fat-dI got an error: chown: changing ownership of '/fat-d/':Operation not permittedBut how can the root have no permission to change the owner?
