Ubuntu :: Permissions For Folder Access For 'Others' Is Always Set To 'Access Files'?
Apr 22, 2011
I've created a new user for a SSH tunnel only.After login I can access all directories because permissions is set for "Others" to "Access files".Now my question: Is this normal that permissions for Folder access for "Others" is always set to "Access files"?I don't want my SSH tunnel user accessing the directories.
i have 3 shares on my samba. i have users - user, manager and boss projects is RW to everyone reference is R to everyone RW to manager and boss Proposals is RW only to boss, no access to others However when boss logs in and creates a directory in projects share, the directory can only be renamed bu users and manager, and directory contents are read only for users and managers, even deletion / rename is denied. How can i make sure that when ever boss creates a directory in projects, it retains base folder permissions and is writable to user this is my samba file... i am using red hat 6.1 with samba 3.5.6 (i think)

how to give full set of permisions to an user in linux to access a folder?
the permissions for my home directory were accidentally changed from 'access files' to 'create and delete files', and I changed them back, but ever since then I am not able to change any preferences/settings at all. power management, themes, panels, emerald, anything. my user account is supposed to be the administrator, and all the user privliges are checked. how to get control of my computer back?
I am setting up a samba server to operate in a windows AD domain. I want to set permissions for multiple groups to have different levels of access to one group of files, and it looks to me like unix permissions will not do that? I always hear about how robust linux is, and it seems to me that their file permissions model is WEAK compared to microsoft's?

I installed Fedora 12 a couple of days ago. This is my secondary operating system. The main one is Mint 8 and in order to have the same documents in both OSs I have a separate /home partition, but for some reason I don't see any of my Documents. In the installation I told fedora that I already had a /home partition and to use it. Also if I mount Mint's disk, while I can browse the folders, I can't see any document .
Finally I can access my Mint's home folder and files but since my username in fedora has a capital A it created another home folder. How can I change my home folder path so it point to the other home folder?
I'm using ubuntu server 9.10 for a home build NAS. Everything is working great just have one more thing to figure out. I have Samba set up to access my files and I set up a recycle feature so anything deleted will get moved to a Recycled folder. (I learned this the hard way after hitting delete key by accident while browsing the shares in windows. Lost 100 GB of data)
Now it is for the most part working but the permissions on folders isn't getting set right. If I delete a file in a share I can go to Recycle bin folder and delete the file for good. But if I delete a folder I can not access that folder to delete or restore from the Recycle bin folder. I have to chmod the folder before I can do anything with it. Anything I can change to get folders deleted via windows to have the right permissions when it is moved to the Recycle bin folder?
I want to give a mounted folder /mnt/folder access so that 'root and the group test have read write access' and all other users have read access I understand most of the chmod command, the users groups world etc but where in the 'command' do you specify which 'group' or 'user' you are giving the read / write access to? in all the tutorials i've seen no where do you specify the actual group or user.
I am setting up a new ubuntu server, and I am quite new to linux. This server will be used as code repository for a project I am going to be working on. I plan to setup 3 groups for users: dev, test, doc
- for various developers, testers and documentation users.
I would like to setup the following permissions on the main code repository directory:
dev - write permission test - execute permission doc - read permission public (anyone outside these groups) - deny all access
I am unsure what chmod setting to use, or if this is even possible in ubuntu.
I am using Ubuntu after a BSOD error. Ubuntu is awesome, I can access all my windows files, however, I need to access my programs on windows. Here's what happened - I accidentally changed permissions after getting a virus. I then tried to do a system restore and during that process the computer crashed. When I try to boot to windows in every possible mode, I am always left with the dreaded blue screen of death.
I'm mounting a cifs share via fstab, and using both the uid and gid for the permissions when mounted (I did try with just gid set too..) My user account is part of the 'users' group.
gid=users; I get read only uid=nobody, gid=users; read only uid=veehexx, gid=users; RW access.
Why is that? surely if permissions are set to use groups rather than users, then it should work. How do I get around this? All my knowledge is based in the Microsoft camp - if a user is in a group, then you can assign that group to a resource and it will work.
I have a home network setup. The server has OpenSuse 11.1 installed. I have a laptop with Ubuntu 9.04 and my wife has an iMac. My wife an I are both members of the same group and that group has full rwx permissions in the directories we access. All the directories we need belong to that group. We can all connect to the server and access files without a problem. However it seems that all the files are read only for the other user. In other words if I make a directory on the server and save a file in there, I can access it with full permissions and my wife only gets read access and vice versa. What should I be looking out for or checking that would enable both of us to have full permissions other than setting permissions on the directories to the group we share (which I have done)? I also have one other question.... I notice that some users and some of the groups have the same number. I assume that this is normal?
What should I do if I want to allow access to USB flash drive selectively - Say for e.g. All permissions for "root", "Read/Write" for user "A", Only "Read" for user "B" and user "C" shouldn't be able to access or mount (no permissions) the USB flash drive at all.Also I want to do it by modifying entries in some files or by some commands (so that it can be done programatically if needed)
On my system have to partitions instead of ext4 and swap, that is ntfs partitions and have two account one is sysadmin and my name csmct. Sysadmin have admin power and csmct is a user account. If I login ed as user csmct. I cant able access those ntfs files. Ubuntu asking me for the sysadmin password authentication. How can I access those ntfs partitions with rakesh password. For frequent access I changed both passwords to same <snip>
I don't know what triggers this, but every now and then I seem to lose the ability to do a lot of stuff: * access the webcam * shutdown from GNOME * change power manager preferences * mount external drives A reboot makes it all work again. This is on Fedora 14.
I am looking for the best way to set up permissions in the following situation. I have a web server set up on debian. I have different web sites in /var/www. Each web has a group of developers who each have system users and ssh access to the server. For example i have a web site in /var/www/example.com and a group of developers in group exampledev. I need all the users in exampledev plus the apache user (www-data) to have read write and execute permissions on all the content of the web site. I can give the group exampledev these permissions without a problem. The problem is that when they modify or create new files (they either connect via ssh o sftp which is the same right?) they are created with their user and group rather than exampledev. Am i going down the wrong path? This must be a common situation but i haven't found the solution.
I just installed Karmic, but I can't copy an old user's home folder (/home/oldusername/) because everything is owned by root.I read but I'm concerned about messing up the system or the files in that old user's folder.So, how do I adjust the permissions of the files in /home/oldusername so that I can use openssh to copy them over my home network to my other computer? I have the ssh part figured out, but the files will not copy to the laptop due to permissions.
I have a shared folder set up that allows all users on the computer to have access to all the music on the computer. In the folder with all the music the group 'music' has permission to add and delete files and all users are members of 'music'. This should allow all users to have complete access to these files, however, when I add files to the folder they retain their original permissions and do not take on the permissions of the folder. I could change the permissions of the files to reflect the folder every time I add a cd. But that is annoying. What I am wondering is if there is any way to make files automatically reflect the permissions on the folder they are moved into.
I do have an Ubuntu Headless server which is running Samba on it. My mp3 file collection resides on that server on is being share.
So far, no problems connecting to that drive and writing from my Windows box on that share. But if I use my main laptop, which runs Ubuntu Lucid and download an mp3 song from Amazon, the moment I move that to the share, I got permissions problems from the Windows machine. This is clearly a permission issue with group and others; the song is being created on the share without read and write permissions to others or the samba group I created.
My question is. How can I make this process simple or automatic, when moving songs to the share? I don't want to go there everytime and run ...
Which was basically how I reset or fixed the problem.
I've read about umask, but not sure if that applies here or not, because I'm not creating the file but moving it.
Is there a way to restrict users that are logged into the shell via SSH/Telnet/SFTP from using the 'cd' command to move into certain directories, yet not use the chmod command to do it? For instance, restrict users logged in from accessing the /var/www/ folder but have it still accessible using a web browser. Also, would this defeat the purpose since they could just wget from it if its still web accessible through a browser?
I have apache2 running on my computer. I want to change the permissions for /var/www/ so that I can edit the files without a problem. Right now I can use the gksudo command, but I'd like to be able to have all the files available when using an IDE like eclipse. I've read in several places that Code: chmod 755 /var/www will do, but if I'm not mistaken that would give read/write access to anyone. I'm not in a production environment, so I'm not too worried about security, but I'd like to give anyone else as less permissions as possible. Would this be possible?
Looking for some help writing a simple script on my dapper server. I want the script to play a short 5 second wmv sound file. So I can tell another program to run the script. What player can or should I use and how can I set permissions on the file and script so my program has access to it . Total newb here
