Software :: How To Configure FTP Permissions?

Jun 19, 2011

I currently have a sever running Ubuntu 9.x (don't remember) and am running a SMF (Simple Machine Forum, free) 2.0 forum on there. I have been using SFTP to transfer files, but SMF has package/mod installer that requires FTP to install the packages. I manage to set up vsftpd and add a new user (that I called SMF) to my system for SMF to use. I am able to log on with fpt as that user, but I only have read access, and I need to configure write access. How do I do that? Vsftpd has the umask configure as 022, and I made the SMF user part of group root. I still can use it. And no, vsftpd will not allow remote root logon, at least from what I can see.

Ubuntu :: Permissions For Rsync And BackinTime - Setup 2nd HD With Correct Permissions?

May 31, 2011

Problem: permissions for rsync and BackinTime. Setup: Ubuntu 11.04, Two internal HD, #1=main, single boot, #2=backup drive. Question: How do I set up my 2nd HD with correct permissions? Background: I had previously a dual boot XP+10.04 with a 2nd HD formatted as NTFS. With this I was able to use my rsync and backintime to my 2nd HD with no issue. My new set up is EXT4 on both HD.

(I even tried to reformat my 2nd HD as NTFS, but that didnt fix the issue) I followed [URL] to mount the 2nd HD and get permissions. But now when I run backintime i get this error: [E] Error: rsync: opendir "/home/myhome/.ssh" failed: Permission denied (13) I did my requisite reading for a newbie, and am stuck. I ran backintime as root, and it backed up ok. How do I run my user version of backintime? (i.e. How do I fix the permission issue?)

OpenSUSE :: Configure / Syncing The Conduits Through The "Configure Kpilot" Menu Item

Feb 8, 2010

kpilot worked just fine with my Palm Tungsten T3 on OpenSuse 10.3. I recently upgraded to 11.2 and have had numerous problems. It took me a while to get the hardware talking (documented in another thread), but now the sync is proving to be problematic. A hotsync happens - and I can also sync fully with jpilot, but the sync isn't going anywhere. I'm hoping to sync with kontact, but it's impossible to tell as kpilot hangs whenever I try to configure the conduits through the "Configure kpilot" menu item. When syncing, the log complains of missing conduits:

Version: KPilot 5.3.0 (KDE 4.3.0)
Version: pilot-link 0.12.3
Version: KDE 4.3.1 (KDE 4.3.1) "release 6"

Ubuntu :: FTP With More Permissions

Dec 3, 2010

I have been reading online help all afternoon, and it has really helped me on setting up virtual hosts but this one confuses me.I appreciate that 'root' is not enabled for login and the recommendation is that it should not be. I also understand sudo to elevate myself to root equivalent to do admin tasks.However, I would like to use an FTP client to edit some of the files on the server but sudo obviously does not work.

At the moment I have to use sudo vi <filename> I would really like to FTP onto the server, download the file, edit it and re-upload it. However as an FTP user I do not have write permission to the files.

Fedora :: Can't Change Permissions

Apr 29, 2010

I'm trying to change the permission of /media/external which is my external HDD that I want to share with read/write rights over LAN. Tried both Nautilus and chmod as simple user and as root to no avail. Permissions keep reverting back to default.
I have a feeling that Linux for security reasons does not allow me to share the top directory of a device... As any way to work around this?

Fedora :: How To Set Permissions For Matlab

Sep 18, 2010

I need to set up permissions for matlab (at least I think permissions is the problem). I haven't been able to find any conclusive instructions how to set permissions and the advice I see are often confusing or contradictory. I have installed matlab (64-bit version) using root account as that was recommended by the installer and everything seems fine except for the error message I got after installation:

[root@localhost User]# /mnt/dvd/install
The following messages were written to standard error while running 'xsetup' the X Window System version of 'install'.
xsetup: Unable to load required font.
Warning: This program is an suid-root program or is being run by the root user. The full text of the error or warning message cannot be safely formatted in this environment. You may get a more descriptive message by running the program as a non-root user or by removing the suid bit on the executable.
Warning: Cannot convert string "%s" to type %s
Check the content of the installation output file (backend):

Error messages found:
Warning: Permission Problem With MATLAB Files!
| Checked some files in your MATLAB root directory. These are bad:|
-r--r--r--. (not world readable) - ./toolbox/matlab/general/diary.m .....

Can I set up permissions to make it work afterwards? If so - how? I see the error message talking about the permissions being -r--r--r-- which I guess is only readable to all users. But should I set permissions to folders, executables or both? Was there anything I could have done before installation to make this work? I'm rather new to linux though I feel quite comfortable to work with the terminal. My system is fedora 13.

I found this excellent resource: [URL]. Though I'm still not sure how to set up permissions and I'm a bit hesitant as I don't want to create any security holes in my system. Would it be enough for me to give executable rights for my user to the program files in usr/local/bin? Now that I look at the permissions it seems I already have permission (through others...?) to the mentioned files.
-r-xr-xr-x. 1 root root 174426 5 jan 2010
-r-xr-xr-x. 1 root root 94246 4 jan 2010

General :: Localhost 403 - How To Set Right Permissions

Jul 11, 2011

My DocumentRoot is set to /var/workspace/www

drwxrwx--- 110 radek www-data 4096 Jul 11 11:34 www

Firstly i had 777 permissions on that folder (and all files inside), but i don't like it, because everyone can see it and change it.

As Apache runs under user www-data:www-data, i tried to set the group and permissions:

sudo chgrp www-data www -R
sudo chmod 770 www -R

After i done that, http://localhost started to show 403 - Forbidden. It just looks like apache is taken as "other" (from owner, group, other) in words of permissions.

What should i change (permissions, owners, whatever) to keep all files visible and changable only for me (user radek) and executable by apache?

As i can see, there's one Apache process running under root and many others under www-data.

radek@me:/$ ps -Af | grep apache
root 13165 1 0 11:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data 13173 13165 0 11:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
www-data 13174 13165 0 11:37 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

Ubuntu :: Permissions Could Not Be Changed?

Jun 24, 2010

I recently got a T-Mobile Tap and I've been trying to connect it via USB to my laptop running Lucid.When I open up the icon that shows up on my desktop after connecting it, I can't run the setup files inside. It says: The file '/media/HUAWEI/checksetup.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.When I try to change the permissions from ready only, I get: Sorry, could not change the permissions of"checksetup.exe": Error setting permissions: Read-only file systemCan I tried calling T-Mobile but they said they don't troubleshoot with Linux. They said it's an "older operating system".

Ubuntu :: How To Set Permissions And Sharing

Jul 24, 2010

I have 4 hard-drives in my tower.Hard-drive 1 contains all the system files.

hdd 2 contains all music
hdd 3 contains video
hdd 4 contains misc data

The root of the system "/" is on drive 1, and I used fstab to mount hdd 2 - 4 under /storage/music /storage/video and /storage/misc I want /storage/misc to be readable and writable by people on the LAN. The other 2, I would like to be "read" only.

what should I set the permission of /storage to and what should i put /storage/misc to.If I put /storage/misc to 777 (chmod 777 -R /storage/misc), will people ever be able to go up the "tree" and ever get access to "/"?

Ubuntu :: Setting Up FTP With Permissions?

Dec 29, 2010

I recently got an old computer to use as a server and I have a whole list of things I want to do on it, but I'm having difficulties.When I installed the server, I installed AMP, FTP, Samba, CUPS, and some other items. I made a user account called 'nessdan' which (currently!) is in these groups:

www-data adm dialout cdrom plugdev lpadmin sambashare admin

The www-data group was added because I wanted to FTP my site files into '/var/www/' . Okay, that ended up working out for me. This is where things got sticky. I installed PHPMyAdmin and the files went to '/usr/share/phpmyadmin/' . I wanted to install a new theme so I downloaded it onto my Laptop, then logged in via FTP but couldn't transfer files into there! It turns out the folder was owned by 'root' and was in the group 'root'. The only thing I could come up with was to change that folders permissions so the owner was 'nessdan' and the group 'admin'. I was going to do that to the entire /usr/share/ folder but I didn't know whether or not I should be changing the permissions in the first place.

But the the trend continues! I have my print server setup and working but I wanted the server to hold the Windows drivers, so I went to '/var/lib/samba/' to do some work but noticed that a lot of the files' permissions were locked down to read only and the owner and group were 'root' . I ended up doing a 'chmod 775' and changing the owner and group to 'nessdan' and 'admin', respectively. Well I transfered over the files but now the service nmbd isn't working. The good news is, I expected to mess something up along the way and had already planned on reinstalling Ubuntu Server 10.10. I've only had the server for 4 days now and I knew from the beginning I'd be wiping it clean. I want to know how to set this thing up proper and the biggest problem is getting access into folders so I can FTP into them.When I do wipe my PC clean and start anew, how should I go about the changes that I did before (PHPMyAdmin, Samba Driver Folder)?
