I'm setting up my second homeserver and i'm trying a better/safer approach this time.
My last box ran centOS6.5, Plexmediaserver (ntfs mounted drives) ; Samba , znc , ftp & ssh.
Now this machine was perfect still works like a charm. But i want to do things better this time.
So i got an old server HP Proliant ml350 G5 for a buck. I've finally dared to format 3x 2tb drives as Ext4 and have them running in a software RAID 5. (bye bye NTFS)
Now since my parents will also be using this server as backup and fileserver, i need some permissions in my sambashares.
So i've set up a directory at /sambashares and gave Thomas ownership of it.
but now the rest
So what i'm struggling with:
User Thomas needs to have read/write/execute access to the whole /sambashares dir
(including Patrick & Nane's files)
Patrick needs read/write/execute access to /sambashares/Patrick & /sambashares/"NewItemsHere"
Patrick needs read access in Movies / TvShows
Patrick may not see the data of Thomas or Nane
Nane needs read/write/execute access to /sambashares/Nane & /sambashares/"NewItemsHere"
Nane needs read access in Movies / TvShows
Nane may not see the data of Thomas or Patrick
I already added 2 groups (admins & pheasants)
Thomas is in the admin group.
Nane and Patrick are in Pheasants
Note: If i recall correctly PlexMediaserver needs ownership of the movie files and Tv Shows for it to function correctly.
(not sure about that, might have been a requirement with mounted NTFS drives)
Time is not on my side, i'm at the end of my CCNA certification and my brain is overloaded with routing commands due to exams coming soon! So if anyone could help me on the way with some keystrokes, that would be great.
