In Windows I used WinSCP to do all of my server work. It was easy and intuitive to use. In Ubuntu, I've been recommended to use "sftp://" for the location. I can change folder permission settings this way, but it doesn't allow me to change the owner and group, and doesn't allow to change the file permissions (folder permissions are ok though).
Can anyone point me in the right direction? How do I go about doing this? I'm much more comfortable doing it via GUI rather than terminal.
On the server I can see the owner as vampird and the correct group, VampirD Microsoft Windows is like air conditioning Stops working when you open a window. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.12 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with SUSE - [URL] iEYEARECAAYFAkxHNfAACgkQJQ+0ABWtaVlcagCdEo5kiwydUTmZ+dkD4R4jholx bi4AoO6T2OzHealqsQ+9Z42jJ7rYJ6uL =YKm8 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
I use 9.10 desktop with a root user and my own user (timmo), I did not create anything else. Now I check a directory (mysql databases) with ls -l and I see mysql not only as a group but also as owner. How can mysql, not being a user on my system, be an owner? In users and groups I see that all of the many groups only have two members, root and timmo. I know that mysql users and linux users are different animals but ls -l is definitely a linux command.
Did a fresh install of Maverick, all is well but if I insert a video DVD, it won't play. But if I open Movie Player, etc. as root, I can play the individual chapters - that is I need to manually choose which chapter to play, it won't start at the beginning and play to the end. Have installed libdvdcss3, restricted extras, etc. I am a member of the "video" group.Data & music CD's work fine in the drive; data DVD's are fine also. Just no DVD playing with me as the user; nor does the DVD appear in my Places menu, etc
I can't figure out how to make files have a different default owner:group.. Example:I need the users of my group called gpib, to create new files with: username:gpib, instead of the default: username:username
A colleague of mine has a Linux box (running Debian I believe) with an SVN repository on it. The repository directory and files 'owner' is my colleauge. We are both members of a group called 'users'. He manages several projects both Linux and Windows apps, while I have one Windows app. For the Windows apps, we both use TortoiseSVN via an SSH link to commit/update. Performing the command 'ls -l' shows the repository files and folders on the Linux box to have the following permissions:
-rwxrwx--- john users
However, when my colleauge commits to the repository, the permissions change to:
-rwxrwx--- john john
This then means I get 'Permission denied' when trying to access the repository myself as it appears that the group permissions have been overwritten with only 'owner' permissions. To fix this, a 'chown -R' command is applied to the files/folders to set the permissions back to owner/group, but each time he writes to the repository, the issue repeats.
The server is named alpha and is running Archlinux. It is exporting a directory named /files. The server is a couple of years old and I have accessed it extensively from clients running Arch, Suse, PCLinuxOS, and maybe some others, all with no problems. The clients (3 of them) are new installations of Linux Mint 10 (Julia). When I mount the nfs all of the nfs files are visible as expected. However, the owner/group is drastically different than on the server.
I might add that I have set up user id's and group id's the same. My user is 1003 on all systems, and the users group is 100 on all systems. When I am on alpha (via ssh), here is a partial file listing.
Code: [dick@alpha dick]$ ls -l total 9740 drwxr-xr-x 3 dick users 4096 May 16 2009 airplane -rw-rw-r-- 1 dick users 240978 Jun 27 2009 Alice Grad 1934.pdf -rwxr-xr-x 1 dick users 444 Jul 8 2007 alpha2ast -rw-r--r-- 1 dick users 444 Sep 2 2009 alpha2charlie
If have searched the Mint forums, LQ forums, and google in general. I must be missing something in my search because I can't believe that no one else has this same problem and I am having it on 3 different boxes.
have recently installed ubuntu server on a new machine. I have added 3 users and I have assigned them to a group.The three of us work together on a lot of stuff so what I would like to do is to have a specific folder made the groups folder. All files that are created or moved into this folder should automatically be owned by the group. I.e. all 3 of us should have the right to read and write to these files.
According to a couple of different places, it's not possible for me to put a line in /etc/fstab to mount one of my partitions with owner and group not root; instead, I have to mount it in /etc/fstab, then chown & chgrp to my user. That seems ridiculously tedious and silly... is it true? I'm sure a short script could be written to get around it, but it seems obtuse for Linux not to allow that to be set in /etc/fstab.
In my /var/www directory, I have everything set up with: user: www-data group: developers directories: chmod 570 files: chmod 460
Everything seems fine. Users from the developers group can edit files and all, but now we began using the Git repository, and whenever a user edits a file (ie. Joe who is a developer,) file permissions get screwed again. Now they're: user: Joe group: Joe directories: chmod 755 files: chmod 644 How can I fix this so permissions remain the same?
Im trying to change a group to have read write and execute permissions on everything in the system through command prompt, some people told me to edit the /etc/group file but i don't have a file that exists there under that name, but the group does already exist, i just don't know where its located. Anyone have a clue where i can check or what to do ?
I'm working in Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop with Apache installed. I have a directory /var/www/test:drwxrwxr-x 5 root www-data 4096 2010-01-04 13:51 test And I've added myself as a member of the group www-data. Problem though is when i go into /var/www/test I still can't do anything, whether it's creating a new file or directory or editing files there. The files within the directory are also 775 and setup under group www-data.
I'm using ubuntu 11.04, I'm having some problem of ownership while sharing folder/files. to share i change the folder share option:1. Share this folder, then followed by 2.allow others to create and delete files in this folder3. guest access.Now if someone in my local network edit any file and save it, it gets locked. if some one copy their file in this folder the permission is marked as "no group" "no owner". and they get unaccessible to me. i tried doing chown <user> <folder> but it says Operation not permitted. Now how i can possibly share my folder on local network so that they can be edited by others without getting locked down , if they copy files i can able to modify them.
I have a text file that currently has around 150 000 usernames in it. I need to somehow group them into smaller groups of 1000 and then add that value into the DB. for example user xzy group 1 (hopefully the groups will be digits incrementing)
how to search for 1000 then assign them group 1 and then 1001-1999 to group 2 etc.
i want secondary users can able to change the files permissions of primary group?user MAC is having www as a primary and httpd as secondary group. But he want to change the file permissions (chmod) httpd group files. Is it possible or not? I think its not possible. If it`s possible then let me know how?
I've been tasked with fixing a Red Hat system that dies with a kernel panic during the boot stage:
EXT3-fserror (dev sda1): ext3_check_descriptors: Inode bitmap for group 4 not in group (block 67239937)! EXT3-fs: group descriptors corrupted! mount: error mounting /dev/root on /sysroot as ext3: Invalid argument
I can boot into a Rescue CD, but I'm a bit out of my element because I don't use EXT3 myself, and I've never had to repair a corrupted file system before.
I have a group (GROUP) with a number of users. I recently added a new user (NEW). NEW is able to read but not write group files, whereas all the other users in the group can read and write to the group files. The permissions for the group files indicate that all members of group should have write permission -rwxrwxr-x
/etc/group indicates that NEW is a member of GROUP ... GROUP:x:501:GROUP,OLD,OLD2,OLD3,OLD4,....,NEW
Don't know if it matters, but both OLD and NEW write to the GROUP files over an internet connection. why NEW can't write to GROUP files? Is there a maximum number of members in a group that I might have exceeded?
I have a number of users, categorised into various groups. I would like one of those groups ("developers") to be in the wheel group as well. I don't want to just copy the people from the developers group into wheel, because then when that group changes I'll have to change it in two places. Is there a way to specify that anyone in developers is in wheel, and have that be dynamic?
A bit of an oddity that I've recently run into with my storage folder in my system; it's a newly installed drive that I've set to mount at /storage. When I first tried to use it, programs that I used that attempted to write to it tossed Access Denied errors at me in their own way. Checking the permissions (at the Terminal, ls -l / | grep storage) showed that /storage was set to 'rwxrwxr--'--Owner and Group were given full read/write/execute, but Others could only read. However, my logon to my system is a member of group root. Why, then, with the above bits set, would I not be able to write to it? Changing Others permissions to rwx (and presumably rw would have worked out for me since I don't leave anything executable there) allowed me to write to it, but I don't understand why that would have been necessary. So far as I'm aware, the prior drive that was in my system--mounted at the same location--did not need this treatment.
Is it possible to allow a group/user to execute a command, where one of the parameters of the command is a group as well? example that does not work as intended:
Code: Cmnd_alias SU=/bin/su -l %group1 This example works sortof, it treats the "%group1" literally. I know I can list out the "/bin/su -l <eachuser>", but as you can imagine that is impractical. In this example, I want people in group2(not shown for brevity sake) to be able to su to someone in group1
I have to paste the tar.gz files in /usr/local/src folder but it does not permit me to do that i tried changing the permissions but it says you are not an owner what should i do else than uninstalling ubuntu
