Server :: Rsync Using Www As User Gives Ssh Error - User Www Not Allowed Because Account Locked

Feb 11, 2011

Apache is run as www as is all the files/folders. People are uploading via FTP, scp, so the problem is if I chmod so everyone can read, then rsync as a user it works until new files are added which then my ; if rsync fails with a permission denied. Now I can add a chmod in the script so everyone can read, but since www can already read, I figured I would just change my script to use www. I added the ssh key to his authorized_keys file, but when I try to just ssh in I see this in the secure file;

server sshd[29539]: User www not allowed because account is locked
sshd[29539]: Failed none for invalid user www from ip port 54983 ssh2

Now I read a few places already saying I need to add a password to the account, etc. but before I jump and try all I read, 1st major one, will this now break apache? Will this affect any startup things, etc. and .... will that unlock that user for ssh in or is there another preferred method?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Log In As A Super User?

Apr 22, 2010

Recently I installed Ubuntu using WUBI. During installation it asked for a user name and password which I filled in. That user name and password are the same that I now use to log into ubuntu. But now I am unable to log into super user using the terminal. When I try to log in to the super user account it says that the password is wrong. During the whole installation process only once did wubi ask me to enter password and I am using the same password. My windows user name and password are the same as what I entered during installation.

Ubuntu :: Run A Program As Super User (root)?

Feb 15, 2011

I have been trying to run the program unrevoked so that I can flash and root my phone. I want to do this on Linux, but this requires me to run the program as root and I don't know how to do this. I looked it up online and it told me to simply type sudo reflash or gksudo reflash and I tried both, sudo says it can't find the program and gksudo does something then nothing appears to happen.

Ubuntu :: How Is Super User In Authentication Prompt Determined

May 3, 2010

How is the super user determined for the dialog box that pops up when trying to perform administrative tasks, "An application is attempting to perform an action that requires privileges. Authentication as the super user is required to perform this action."? Does it always ask for the password of the default user created during the OS install, or should it prompt for the current user's password if that person is an administrator?I use likewise-open for windows domain authentication, so I typically log in as a windows user that likewise-open has added to the list of users on this system. I have given this user sudo access and added the user to all the same groups as the default user, yet whenever I perform an administrative task in gnome I am prompted for the password of the default user. Is this normal? It seems like the behavior would be to ask for the current user's password if that user is an administrator, and if so what determines that the current user is an administrator?

Ubuntu :: Firefox Plugins Only Work For Super User?

May 12, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 minimal with Openbox; far from a standard install but nearly everything works the way it should.

The problem appears quite simple:

Firefox does not recognise installed plugins (i.e, Flash) when running as the standard user; if I run the command 'sudo firefox' however, Firefox loads in plugins just as it should.

I've checked about:plugins in both instances and this has confirmed what is stated above. The list is populated when running as the super user, and empty when running as standard.

General :: Folder Permissions Locked Read-only?

Mar 19, 2010

Recently updated the kernel in Ubuntu 9.10 and for some reason now, a folder which was not read-only now is. I can't delete anything from it. Have tried using the GUI for changing permissions, however, it has a mind of it's own and won't unlock the folder.

Anyone had this happen where a folder locked when you didn't want it to be?

Red Hat :: Locked Out Of Tmp Folder - System Appears To Be Running Normally

Jan 28, 2010

I am new to Red Hat Linux. The other day I downloaded some files from the internet. The download manager placed them in the Filesystem "tmp" folder.
I determined that one of the files was 330 megabytes and the other were about another 76 Megabytes.

When I attempt to view the folder, I get a dialog box asking if I want to cancel the operation. The folder does not open.

I tried copying the folder to the desktop and was able to do this and only five files appeared in the folder... none of my downloads appeared there.

Question:
1.- how do I view the contents of the folder?
2.- Can I fix this problem?

I have rebooted the server several times, no change in tmp file access.

I tried to delete folder, system will not allow this. I am experiencing a small problem, "fooling" with this folder sort of wipes out the desktop - eventually it is restored after I tell the system to restart the Nautilus.

By the way I downloaded the files on another machine.

Debian :: Root / Super User Access On KDE Version

Mar 16, 2009

After a week of working with Debian, I decided to install the KDE3 version straight from an NetInstall CD. This fixed some issues for me as well as made networking and folder sharring a snap! But now its time to add all the extra packages I need.

Here's the problem: Using any kind of Package Manager yields the same results:
E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (11 Resource temporarily unavailable)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (var/lib/dpkg/), in another process using it?
RESULT=100

I've tried apt-get from root command line and the KPackage Manager that comes with KDE3 with same results. I have only one user that was created during Debian install. I'm having some other problems, from what I've seen on the net, they all seem to point to not having proper Super User access (I'm guessing here). What could cause this error? AND/OR How do I make sure I have top level access to the configure the system? (I tried logging in as "root", but the login errored out saying that this was not allowed).

Ubuntu :: Buttons References - Use The <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 For The Enabled Compiz Screenshot Plugin)?

Jun 5, 2011

how to use the <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 for example for the enabled Compiz Screenshot plugin)? I also notice there is configurable buttons 1 throught 20 under the various options. At first I thought the ButtonX was a mouse button. Maybe it is with some anticipation of there being eventually being a possible 20 buttons on the mouse. I know the Super key is the Key with the Windows logo on it. But I don't know what to do to get the needed Super Key / Button combination. After having enabled Compiz's Screenshot plugin by its default, I don't get an image after hitting any of the Super key and mouse button combinations. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.

After a powerdown during my upgrade of Ubuntu 9.10 to Ubuntu 10.04 that rendered my operating system useless I can get to my /home folder. The /home folder is locked and can not be copied or read.

OpenSUSE Install :: User Locked Out After Multiple Passwords?

Dec 5, 2009

I am having a problem with some users who get locked out after more than 3 failed attempts at login. This is exactly what I want to see - they will eventually remember those stronger passwords (maybe?) - but how do I re-enable their access? I haven't tried this on a live box but I can easily recreate the situation via vnc to the server in question and I assume the result would be the same. I like the policy that leads to this but I do need to let them back in - eventually. Where is the blacklist kept and how do I edit/reset it?

Fedora Hardware :: Mousepad Locked On Desktop In User Mode?

Nov 13, 2010

The mouse was working fine until I pressed the 'lock' button right above it. Since then I have not been able to move the mouse 'once' I get logged in. The mouse works fine when in the login screen. I have tried resetting several times.The keyboard seems to be working, but I don't know where to go to fix the mouse, and I don't know many keyboard shortcuts

Ubuntu :: Made An Error With Chmod - Create User But Don't Allow To See The Other User's Home Folder

I wanted to create an user but don't allow it to see the other user's home folder so I made chmod 0750 /home/folder and it worked fine so I went ahead and decided to completely forbid access to the root folder and I had the "great" idea to make chmod 0750 /, and now I'm having problems with wine and other applications, in example I used to have a folder in this address 209.239.114.51/mmgr but now it's giving me errors and if I try to run some applications I got error "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"
