Ubuntu Servers :: Terminal - File Permissions - Put In Folder Have Full Rights For Members In The Group "staff"?
Feb 1, 2011
Now I have set up a terminal server at work, with Ubuntu 10.04LTS and Free NX terminal server. All works great, over all expectations. But I have some file permission problems. In the home folder I have mad a folder where files that all users should have full access to is put. The problem is that when a user puts a file there, only that user have full access to that file, other users only have read rights. How can I make it so that all files put in this folder have full rights for members in the group "staff"?
I have this group "cn=admins,ou=groups,dc=home,dc=com" And I've configured slapd in the new way so I'm not using slapd.conf (I think). First I thought about just modifying the files at /etc/ldap/cn=config/....... but that didn't work. How do I make that group into an admin-group with all the rights ?
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 have a little problem: I have a share folder on Ubuntu server: - Dump That folder is share with SAMBA and everyone can put files on it My problem is the following: When someone create a folder, the folder permissions are automatically set with: (let's take my username: Yann)
Owner: Yann Group: Yann
Clearly that's wrong.. I want the Group to be auto set has "users" so everyone can access the folders on that share. Anyone know how to change this ? chmod and chown is getting a bit boring
I am running into a Brick wall with this. And thought that the knowledge and expertise here would be a good place to seek help.I have CentOS 5.4 server running Samba on a WinBloZ network. I have the groups all setup and that aspect works fine. But here lies the issues.In a shared directory with group permissions set if someone on the group with permission to this directory creates a file they are the only person that can edit / modify that file. That file need to be editable by the entire group. But the only way thus far I can achieve this is to manually chmod the files in the directory. I know there is a way to fix this, but I have not found it. Can someone please explain how to make this work for me.
I have Unbuntu 2.32.1 Build date 14/4/11 I have Samba Installed I also have 8 Sata drives all with NTFS most of them have a lot of data on them. All my drives were used on an old windows 7 system, and now I wish to have them in a server setup.
My clients are all windows users apart from 1 witch is an Unbuntu desktop user. The problem I have is access rights or permissions none of the clients can gain access to my NTFS shares. I am using a GUI on my server (Gnome) as I am not very clued up with command lines in Unbuntu just yet.
Every time I try to change file or folder permissions on a separate internal drive in ubuntu 10.10 desktop in sudo file manager, It sets it right back to the way it was before and doesn't save the permissions I want to change it to. The files aren't critical system files that are not even existent on this hard drive.
Its on a completely separate drive, Yet aren't I suppose to be in control of what gets changed to what? Instead of a Operating System doing something just for my safety? A simple AVI files permissions being changed shouldn't hurt anything. How to I stop ubuntu 10.10 from auto setting the permissions of my folders and files? Its really starting to me off right now. I've been looking around on google for Auto reset permissions for ubuntu, Haven't found one word about it. Yet I'm just going to assume someone might know how to resolve this? Or has dealed with this before.
I'm just trying to Forcefully set my folders on my separate drive all to 777 because they are all 775 and 755 and I can only access them with Write privileges if I run the SUDO file manager which I really hate having to do every so often I'm sure you can relate to how annoying it is to have to open up terminal and type something in to open a fully priviledged file manager.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 and have been trying to set up a USB printer. I hit a problem which I eventually diagnosed as being the ownership of /dev/usb/lp0.
First, the symptom: ~$ cat Test > /dev/usb/lp0 bash: /dev/usb/lp0: Permission denied
The initial diagnosis: ~$ ls -l /dev/usb/lp0 crw-rw---- 1 root lp 180, 0 2010-03-23 21:39 /dev/usb/lp0
Notice the lp group? When I checked group properties, this group did not have any members - not even root! The default for CUPS (from the CUPS doc) is lpadmin, in any case, so not sure what lp is all about. In fact, the 'lp' group has ID=0, the same as the 'root' group.
I fixed it by doing this: ~$ sudo chown root:lpadmin /dev/usb/lp0
Then I noticed that /dev/lp0 and /dev/parport0 also had group=lp, so I also did this: ~$ sudo chown root:lpadmin /dev/lp* ~$ sudo chown root:lpadmin /dev/parport*
I am new to ubuntu and just installed the vsftpd service by this tutorial: [URL]. Now my question is how can I give users rights to one specific folder? useradd username -d /home/folder/new Thats the command id used but when I login to the ftp the user is able to see all other folders as well ..

how to give full set of permisions to an user in linux to access a folder?
i've configured my pc using 'sudo pppoeconf' and it worked fine, but when i rebooted my pc and tried to connect using 'pon dsl-provider' it says 'Error: only members of the 'dip' group can use this command'. I've added myself to the group and tried to connect but to no use.Im able to connect in windows without any issues.
i created a directory in my webserver as well as a group "webdevs" which I want to give write permissions to, and include my user so that i can edit.i used [addgroup webdevs] then [adduser MYUSER webdevs].then [sudo chown root:webdevs MYDIR]then [sudo chmod 774 MYDIR]when I try to cd to MYDIR under MYUSER, I get permission denied.
I have a couple of user accounts where each member belongs to a group i have created: Each user access the share using their own user account credentials. How can I configure Samba in a way so that each modification done on the share gets the owner of the user and my group instead of the user and the users own group? I would also like the access rights to be 770 to each modification.
In other words, today each modification by "userA" get the owner "userA.userA" and I would like it to be "userA.MyGroup" with "rwxrwx---" permissions.
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?
I'm studying Linux and just started reading about permissions and ownership. My question is how would you have multiple users or groups given access to a certain directory? When doing an ls -l I see the owner, group and others that have permissions that have access to the file or directory. But what if I need multiple different groups access to a particular file or directory all with different permissions?
We are looking for a web based, server application to manage staff skills running on ubuntu (10.04 lts). Something like we attach tags with skills to people photographs, and then when people connect to the application by means of a browser, they see a list of tags, they click on a tag they get a list of people who have that skill. Ideally, the tags should be hierarchical (for example, skill: statistics, subskill: non-linear).
I have previously set up sudo via adding my name to the wheel group and then giving full privileges to the wheel group in the sudoers file. Now I choose to learn to limit that. Had noticed the most frequent use I have of sudo is to run yum update. This got me thinking, could I remove the wheel group privileges and add the following line in sudoers to limit the privilege to simply running yum, and furthermore, make it so I could run yum without a password:
## Allow root to run any commands anywhere rootALL=(ALL) ALL Troy ALL= NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/yum
I think that would in fact work (if I understood one of the pages here, it will work). However, upon further thinking I realized that in such a case then anyone sitting at my computer could then use yum, without a password, to install or remove any file on my system � probably not a good idea. As a result I have to ask, can I tighten the privilege even further such that the only privilege so given was to run �yum update� and nothing else? (for example if they ran �yum install� it would fail). If you can do it, how?
Last, I was going to limit the privilege, time wise and try wise, by adding the following to the sudoers file:
I have joined the domain (server 2003) and can log in consistently now. Now I would like to give all the windows users in on specific group (domain power users) SUDO rights on the machines in question. I have found one way to add users on a pr. user basis, but adding 30 users will take some time.
I've installed Directory Server (LDAP). The setup has been done according to the tutorials online. Able to access the interface as well. So far so good. The issue I have is with permissions. I can assign file permissions to a user created in the Directory Server ( user not created on the local server). But the same can't be done for a group - alteast the way I currently see it. How could i assign file system rights to a group created in the directory server.
I had an old windoz 2003 server running a few recreational web sites. I've grown tired of all the hacking attempts, FTP floods, etc. Ok.. I've grown tired of windoz period.When I set the server up, I had the operating system on one physical drive and stored all of the web files on a separate physical drive just in case I ever wanted to make some changes to the operating system.in my adventurous ways, I've dumped windoz and installed ubuntu 11, 32 bit server edition on this machine. It is running fine from what I see on the server side. The first problem I've noticed is when even attempting to navigate to localhost through the server's web browser, I get a permissions issue.
So... off to the drive where the httpd.conf file points to. This is the second physical drive. When checking permissions and attempting to change them to the correct ones for the folder, I can't change them. I've tried through the GUI and the terminal as root. Neither way will change the permissions.I've stepped back and checked the permissions on the physical drive the files are stored on. I am having the same issues with the drive itself. How in the world can I change the permissions either on the drive or the folder? Is there something I should do as far as the drive's mounting?
I opened up my Gimp brushes folder so that I can put a brushes file into the folder. Would not let me do it. Said I am not the owner and do not have permission. I right clicked inside the folder, same thing permissions grayed out, not owner. No apparent option to log in or do anything to gain permission. What can I do?
Im running samba on fedora core 7, im abit new to the server part of fedora, i set up samba and it runs well, only issue i have now is resolving permissions( User Rights)i have a shared folder which has alot of files and many subfolders in it, the files and folders in this shared foldr were copied from our old Novell Server through samba, i need to assign permissions to this folder where by a defined usergroup can have full read and write permissions to all the files and folders and sub-folders in the shared folder. i tried doing it in GUI but i realized there were over 1000 subfolders.is there a command i can run in the Terminal to help me assign the permissions?
I am running ubuntu using VirtualBox on a Macbook Pro. I wanted to share my documents folder on the Mac in the virtual machine. I had no issues creating/mounting the share folder on ubuntu. However the file permissions for the shared folder are owned by root.
I have two drives in my computer: a 160GB and an 80GB. The 80 holds Ubuntu, the home folder, etc. The 160 is for other files. I need to change the read-write permissions on the 160, but I can't. If I do it through the GUI (right-click>permissions) it just changes back instantly. If I do it through the command line (even with sudo), it has no effect.
