Changes to /etc/group - take effect when?
Are changes to /etc/group instantaneous? My webserver is running as nobody and I'm trying to write files to certain directories, and I created a few new groups and then assigned nobody to them. However, I still can't get nobody to write to anything other than a dir that's owned by itself.
Do I need to reboot for these changes to take effect? Is there a command I can issue to reload the group / passwd stuff? Or am I just totally off here and the problem must be something else?
