Ubuntu :: Mount - Give Group Write Permissions In Fstab?
Mar 20, 2010
how do i give group write permissions in fstab? i'm trying to mount a virtualbox shared folder. currently my fstab looks like this Code: Share_Name /mnt/point vboxsf rw,uid=1000,gid=1000 0 0 i want to give both the owner and group, write permissions. currently, only the owner has write permissions, and group read with these mount options.
How can I give an application group permissions?There is a bug in the latest version of Ubuntu's Dovecot, where it is not apart of mail group, so it does not have write permission to the /var/mail directory by default. So I have to give it mail group permissions.
Just finished downloading a game in .run format, i downloaded it to my Home>Downloads folder and ran these commands in terminal: (game is tremulous if it matters)
chmod +x tremulous.run ./tremulous.run
It started it up in the terminal and i began working my way through the installation process, and i tried to install it into my Home>Games folder. (Is it supposed to be home>games or your username>games?)
and it said PERMISSION DENIED. No write permission to Home/Games/
How do i give myself read and write permissions to my game folder?
I am trying to setup fstab to automatically mount my NTFS partitions. I have used various Mount managers to create the entries in fstab. The fstab seems fine, but when mounting at boot or even via Nautilus I get the error message that I do not have permission to mount the disk.
1) Can this permission be set in the fstab file? If so what is the syntax of the fstab entry?
2) If not, is there a tool i.e. GUI to set the mount permissions?
There is a folder that is owned by user tomcat6: drwxr-xr-x 2 tomcat6 tomcat6 69632 2011-05-06 03:43 document. I want to allow another user (ruser) write permissions on document folder. The two users (tomcat6 and ruser) does not belong to same group. I have tried using setfacl: sudo setfacl -m u:ruser:rwx document
but this gives me setfacl: document: Operation not supported error.
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.
On my Suse 11.1 computer, I'm only able to run 'mount' as root, but this screws up the permissions somehow, in that my external drives are now read only when I am normal user. I can plug my external drives to my mac osx laptop via usb or firewire, and I can read,write, and execute. As su, I can mount the drives using usb on my suse computer, but only as read only.
Optimally, I want to edit the fstab file to auto mount these external drives, and then have samba run to make the drives available (i.e. rw) on laptop.
NOTE: 1. I created the file systems on a laptop (mac osx) which has different user name than my suse 11.1 computer.
2. I tried to use chown to manually force user:group to be Mike:users instead of root:root, but the external drives still are 'read only.' Trying different options in column 4 fstab file kept giving same trouble, but I can now get user:group = 99: 99 (not sure what that means).
I have installed a cable that connects from the CPU's SATA motherboard connection to a removable drives' ESATA connection.I would like to be able to swap drives on the ESATA connection and have all users be able to read and write to these drives.I have created the directory /archive/ where I would like the drive(s) to mount.The drives are all formatted Fat 32 - but in the future I may use HFS for formatting.When I used the command (as root):mount /dev/sdc1 /archivethe drive was mounted (but read only)What can I use in my /etc/fstab file that will allow drives to be mounted and unmounted by all users on the system? (both reading and writing)Also, will I be able to mount and unmount these drives without shutting down? or will I need to reboot every time I want to change drives?
I am running Karmic x64 on a HP laptop that has a cd/dvd burner. I have a r/w cd with files on it and I wish to add/remove files to it. After it mounts automatically on insertion, I unmount it and remount with: sudo mount /dev/sr0 -t iso9660 -w /media/cdrom (I tried assorted other hare-brained things also) but it always says that the filesystem is read only. Do I need to use a different device than sr0? Is it even possible under Ubuntu?
I'm trying to set up sshfs on a desktop/fileserver so that I can mount its HDD's I use for storage on my laptops. My issue seems to be getting permission to write to the mounted drives. I just keep getting permission denied. here is what I think are some relevant tidbits. mount point on server,
I just did a fresh install of Lucid, and while I was at it decided to expand my RAID 5 Storage array. Everything seems to have gone fine and I've been able to format the array without an issue. When I reboot,the array automatically appears to mount. However, whenever I try to move a file to the array,I get an error sayingdon't have the right permissions. If I right click on theray and go to the"Permissions" tab,I get an error saying the permissions can't be determined. If I run the mount command in a terminal, I can see the storage array listed, but if I open the /etc/fstab file, I don't see it listed there. So my question is two fold: I don't understand how the array is automounted if it is not in fstaband:how can I change the permissions so I can copy files to the array?
I'm new to debian ,I was trying to mount my NTFS partition but I did that only with read permissions I couldn't install ntfs-config(allthough I have ntfs-3g installed).So I want to figure out how to mount my partitions with read/write permissions automatically as the systeme starts ?
I want to simply mount an ext4 file-system onto a normal mount point in Ubuntu (/media/whereever), as read-writable for the current logged-in user, i.e. me.
I don't want to add anything into /etc/fstab, I just want to do it now, manually. I need super-user privileges to mount a device, but then only root can read-write that mount. I've tried various of the mount options, added it into fstab, but with no luck.
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 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?
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.
I have created vsftp server with grop of users and they can access only to /home/ftp-folder file which i made for them..nw if i apply read rite privilages to this folder then these previlages get by users in the group obvious...bt wot i want z if i creat a folder in /home directory i.e /home/test and i want the particular user in the group can have 777 access and other users in the grop coud nt access that folder..
I'm trying to do something like thisi created a group called www and made this group the owner of the directory/var/www/htmlso i can read and write to it.of course I've add my self to this group, but it seems i can't read and write.the syntax i used was something like chown :www /var/www/html.didn't workonly when i used chown samurai:www /var/www/html i could finally could create new file.the reason i don't want to specify the user name is because I'm thinking of a scenario when i need to give permission to a large group of ppl and don't want to do it user by user.
I run a headless Ubuntu 8.04 server, which acts as a web, email and file server. I am sticking with 8.04 as it is a LTS release and will upgrade to the next LTS when it is released.
I have two external USB drives, that I need to mount at boot. I have been using /etc/fstab up until now, with the following entries:
However, as I gather from doing searches is quite common, occasionally I get an error during boot (causing the system to drop to a recovery shell) because the USB drives take time to wake up and the system hasn't found them by the time it reads /etc/fstab.
From doing searches, it seems there is nothing you can do to fstab to fix this, so you need to mount them using an rc.local script instead, using:
The problem is, as I have two USB drives, their /dev/sdxx location changes between boots. I thus want to use UUID codes as I do in fstab, however I haven't found anything about this.
Does anyone know how I can use the mount command and UUID to mount a drive in rc.local and what options I have to use the mount the drive with the same options that I am using in my fstab entry? Obvisouly, I can't refer back to fstab using the mount command, because then I will still get the boot error issue if they are listed in fstab. And there is no space internally for the USB drives as there is already two internal drives.
I have a laptop with a 250gb drive. It is partitioned in the following way.
Vista 80gb Ubuntu 40gb Data 121 gb (Formatted as NTFS)
And I have a Windows 7 computer I have Samba installed on Ubuntu 9.10 and I can see the Windows7 computer from my Ubuntu laptop. However I can not see my Ubuntu partition or the Data partition over the network. How do I give permission for the Data partition, which is NTFS and the Home partition on Ubuntu?
how do i give full permissions to my account? At the moment i'm logged onto root so i can create files / folders in my LAMP folder (/opt/lampp/htdocs) i've right click on the folder and gone to the permissions tab and give the ownership to my account (Kevin) but it still doesnt let me create files or folders? i just want to give my account full permissions to every folder!
i was using ubuntu 9.04 . i had changed fstab mount option of my ubuntu partition from exec,utf8 to executf8.now i cant get the gui of my ubuntu . only command line appears and i cant edit fstab even from root. it says that the filesystem is readonly.i tried mount -o remount,rwit does'nt work.if anyone have a methode other than reinstall my ubuntu.
I have recently secured a server by preventing root from logging in via SSH. Now I log in with a non-root account and use 'su' when necessary.However, now I can't do something I used to do, which is open 'sftp://user@ipaddress' in nautilus and be able to edit files as root. Is there anyway to get nautilus to give me root permissions on the server? Or at least end up with root permissions in a GUI text editor on my computer? I don't mind if I have to use bash to start the process, once I can get a GUI for editing files.
Note 1: Yes, I realize I could ssh in and use nano/vi etc, but I'd rather use my graphical text editor. Note 2: The server does not run X, so I can't just forward it.
I have a web application which calls scripts on the linux box it's deployed on. Currently, there are some file permission issues which prevent the scripts from running properly. How can I give my web application the needed permissions? I thought of creating a user 'group' , assigning my web app to that group, and changing the ownership of the script files to the new group. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble with the following: What user id does my web app have? If my web app does not have an user id,
I am not at all convinced by the idea of giving permissions to read,write and execute as these Learning Management Systems say. Let me know what you people have to say? What is the best practise in such situations? I have to get all these LMS run on same web server.
