Changing owner and group of file
I don't really understand the syntax of 'chown' even after reading the man pages. It says 'chown [OPTION..OWNER[:[GROUP]] FILE'
I tried 'chown 770 root:notrust /home/notrust' and I get the following error: 'chown: cannot access 'root:notrust': no such file or directory.'
Could I get some help here? If you couldn't tell, I wanted root to own the 'notrust' dir, but also the group 'notrust' so other users could not access it.
chown "new owner" "of what"...
chown root /home/notrust
chgrp notrust /home/notrust
Hope this helps...
Actually you're confusing chown and chmod.
chown root:notrust /home/notrust will work
chmod 770 /home/notrust
