Ubuntu Servers :: Vsftpd Chroot, Creates 550 Error On CHMOD Command?

Jul 14, 2010

I've been searching the web, without finding any sollution to my problem.vsFTPd is acting really weird. I've never seen this problem before, and I've been using vsftpd for some years nowWell.. The thing is, I've made a user that chroots to the folder /var/www on my server. And when I then try to chmod the file /var/www/htdocs/testsite/index.html through my ftp-client, I only get the error "550 SITE CHMOD command failed.", and when I then check in my /var/log/vsftpd.log it says

FAIL CHMOD: Client "", "/htdocs/testsite/index.html 777"
Which I think would mean that it tries to chmod the file "/htdocs/testsite/index.html" instead of chmod the

Software :: Possible To Use The Cd Command In Chroot?

Jul 20, 2010

In a script that I'm still writing, I'm trying to build a package from source within a chroot'ed environment. 1) I could chroot and then cd to /usr/src and then manually install the package. 2) I could chroot and then run the installation script from the proper directory. 3) What I want to do and what's giving me issues, is to issue a command similar to this:

chroot /root/me/here cd /usr/src
...and have it do the installation after changing to /usr/src.

Ubuntu :: Chmod Command For Installing HP All In One Printer

Jan 6, 2010

I'm such a newbie when it comes to Ubuntu, or any Linux varient, period. I was trying to install a driver for an HP All-in-One Printer and was trying all kinds of commands from different Google searches... still unsuccessful in the installation. I downloaded the file to my desktop, but after using a Chmod command someone mentioned, I now have a folder on my desktop named:

i right-click

Basic Tab
Type:folder (inode/directory

Permissions Tab

"You are not the owner so you cannot change these permissions". The folder's icon on my desktop has a red box with white circle on the middle right side and a lock symbol above that. I'm the only user so I don't get why the permissions are protected from me, how do i undo this?

Fedora Servers :: Incremental Tar Creates Wrong File?

Sep 6, 2010

set up incremental backups with crontab. I just discovered that tar is not actually incrementing the tar files. I first created the tar files, then in crontab I have:

cd /; tar -cpf --incremental --exclude-from=/root/ExcludeFromTar.txt mnt/PATRIOT/bkp/home.tar home

I only just discovered that this creates a file whose filename is "/--incremental". I also tried using tar's -G switch instead of --incremental:

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Boot After Update - Udevadm - And No Chroot Command

Dec 20, 2010

I installed Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10 on my Eee PC 901 (the one that has 2 SSD's). It all went fine, and I ran the update manager straight after install and config. It installed the updates (all 198 of them!) without error. I was prompted to restart, so I did. I got the error "udevadm trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured". I found out that this error is well documented, and I followed the guide at [url](apparently it affects all variants, not just UNE).

It went O.K., until I tried the command "sudo chroot /media/newroot". I got the error that "cannot run command '/bind/bash': no such file or directory". What should I do?

I cannot boot into and earlier kernel (problem/current one is 2.6.35-23-generic) I can only fix it via live USB stick.

All directories are set to 775 and all files are set to 664 or 775, as appropriate.If a file is owned by someone else, even though the file and the directory are group writable, I get permission denied when I try to chmod the file.

Ubuntu Servers :: SSH Chroot On A Per-User-Basis?

Mar 23, 2010

I'm attempting to give a few buddies encrypted storage space through sftp using truecrypt.I have it worked out to the point where the truecrypt volume is automatically mounted when the user logs on, and dismounted when they log off.I would like to restrict each person to their individual home folders. This way, I can control exactly how much space each user is able to use (through the size of the truecrypt volume), while maintaining security through the network due to using SFTP.

I've been looking around, and the only thing I can see is restricting a large group of users to a single directory, this won't work, I need each person to be locked down to their personal home directory.My end goal is to have these volumes "mountable" in Windows through the use of Windows network drives (on a wide network, not through samba on local), or by using expandrive or a similar program. how I can lock these users to their respective home folders?

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Setup SFTP In A Chroot

Aug 13, 2010

I'm wanting to setup SFTP in a chroot, which is simply enough to do and I already have it working; however I also want it so that when they connect via SFTP it goes directly to their home directory. Currently I have the following in "/etc/ssh/sshd_config":


Subsystem sftp internal-sftp
Match Group sftp-users
ChrootDirectory /home
AllowTCPForwarding no
ForceCommand internal-sftp

Which works perfectly fine, however when they connect there are shown the contents of the "/home" directory which they then have to "cd username" to get to their home directory. This I do not like, and it confuses our clients who connect saying they can see "random folders that aren't mine", or some that think they've "hacked" the server. I really need it so upon connection they go to "username" directory. I can do this by using:


usermod -d /username username

Which changes the users home directory to "/username", and then upon connection it works just fine, they are taken directory to their home directory. However, I really really do not like the fact that "/etc/passwd" shows a different home directory to their real home directory, i.e it states "/username" when actually it is "/home/username".I've spent the entire day looking a different ways of doing it, and I can't come up with anything.

General :: File Still Unwriteable In /var/www/html After The Chmod Command

Jun 17, 2011

I've got some trouble while trying to install some applications on my linux system. It is said that the files in my /var/www/html/xxx directory, where I put them, is not writeable. The command chmod 777 xxx has been tried to make it work, but the error remains when I opened the applications again.

To be specific, I want to install phpFreeChat on my system, so I put those files in the /var/www/html/freechat directory, cd there and typed chmod 777 data/private, chmod 777 data/public on bash. Here's the result of list -al data:

drwxr-xr-x. 4 root root 4096 Jun 17 15:07 .
drwxr-xr-x. 13 root root 4096 Jun 17 15:22 ..
drwxrwxrwx. 2 root root 4096 Jun 17 15:07 private
drwxrwxrwx. 3 root root 4096 Jun 17 15:07 public

These all seemed all right to me, until I typed http://localhost/freechat in my browser. Here's the result:

phpFreeChat cannot be initialized,
please correct these errors:

CentOS 5 :: /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.TdoItX: Line 7: Chmod: Command Not Found

Jul 7, 2011

I've just tried to create my first own live-cd using the instructions here: [URL] With the minimal kickstart I get a weird problem though:

Installing: libselinux ##################### [ 81/114]
Installing: psmisc ##################### [ 82/114]
Installing: MAKEDEV ##################### [ 83/114]


Notice that "chmod" and "touch" are part of the package coreutils which gets installed only after these commands are used. I'm seeing a similar problem with selinux being referenced before the libselinux package is installed. I can boot the resulting image but after the kernel boots it panics because it cannot find /dev/root which might or might not have something to do with the errors above.
