Folders and files still not inheriting permissions
Is it umask I need or setacl? Standard behavior is that: permissions of an item upon creation are determined by something called a umask. I do not want to use umask it will breach the security. I should've added - in case you're not sure, you can test this out: mkdir tmp; cd tmp touch test1 ls -la umask 002 touch test2 ls -la You'll see the permissions are different on the file created after you apply the umask. I am trying to utilize the setgid bit or a similar functionality to ensure that all files created under a specific nfs directory are assigned the same group. You can change these to what you need.
An already existing group could be used. Files and directories will be created with the user and default group names of the users. The original poster's problem isn't easily solved though; you can set a directory setgid so that files made in it have the same group owner as the directory itself. . If I create a folder it gets my user and group, so nobody else can write to it. In those cases, we just make the apache user the owner of the directory. A real pity because it all works very well apart from the fundamental issue of inheritance.
Give the apache user r+x for directories and r for files. So, you see I never even look at the permissions for the groups much less other. If Samba is in use, dont forget you can always set the default file creation permissions to be whatever you want. I was hoping they would both be -rw-rw-r-- so both alice and bob, as members of dev-fabrikam, could access and overwrite both files, if necessary. Why does it do this, I have no idea, ask apple Click to expand. The only time the apache user needs write capability to a directory is when some script being run by the apache user is creating output.
I haven't fully tested this, and it does require user training. If a program makes a readonly file 0444 then the would be resp. Set umask 006, this will give you 660 for new file creation. And after enabling it, or creating it in the previous location the feature seems non-functional. I've just upgraded a third party software product and am testing it to see if new files created in a test database directory were being created properly and they aren't. I'm assuming this is a secure way to do things. But when I create a new file under that folder, I can see that root still has permissions on it, not www-data.
Existing programs or ones started elsewhere will not get that umask. Remark: new files and directories created in the considered directory will have write permission for the usershare group, but files copied or moved in the folder will retain their original permissions. The command chmod g+s ensures that the group ownership is inherited by new files and folders created in it. There may be a better work around but I have not discovered one. Hi, Your question falls into the paid support category which requires a more in-depth level of support.
Added Info: I have Amahi Server installed in my server, I also used it to create user accounts that I wanted to have access to the shared folders. I just need my samba server to force chmod 770 on every new file and it will work. That line create setgid anything you create under that folder have your users as owner and group myfam. The only thing that can be inherit from the parent directory is fsgid if directory has setgid set, but this is not applied recursively by default, i think what you mean by this is the gid doesnt inherit, but in my setup, once i ran the setgid, each new directory created in this structure is defaulted to that group, rather than the 'users' group. The same user name and password as with the one created in my ubuntu server. For each category user, group, all , there are 3 bits.
The created file will be readable only by the user and root, as ins with elevated rights. One is to set chmod g+s to parent folder and all existing subfolders as you've read. In this case it will be accomplished with a new folder, but this works just as well for existing folders. Now I understand the setgid will not help me in my issue. The easiest way to handle this is to add the relevant users to the same group, and then use umask to set the default permissions on files.
I hope I've explained sufficiently. How can I set up permissions so that we all retain access to files there no matter who creates them, including new folders? I already have a public share setup on a windows7 file server where I have tailored specific users permissions so files dont get accidentally deleted by less experienced users across the network, which usually ends up in data loss since they dont get recycled. Any file created within will be owned by user1 by default, and no other user will be able to get to any of those files because they won't be able to get through the directory. But chmod -R is rarely that useful because normally you want different permissions on directories to those on files. Usually, backups should not be readable, not sure what your backup process is. While the result sometimes makes things easier to see and understand, the result is also that there are often unintended consequences because they don't bother to think the logic out! Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Could you please suggest on it? But you'll need to be aware of some limitations -- see Good Luck! Files I might create as root via sftp still get served just fine.
As a result, nothing really needs to be done. When a directory is owned by a group the user who owns it isn't in such as www-data, files created in it will be owned by that group. That let system override user primary group. Add more additional user accounts for your client machines. Linux inherits rights from the user, not from the settings on the folder that are limiters. For a specific user only, the command can be added to the user's.
