I am trying to setup a Rsync backup method.
I have multiple files and folders all OWNED by different users.
Now I can read the files as root.
But I want to make a user for RSYNC that can ONLY read all these files for copying them across.
BTW, I am following this HOW to :
It requires to create a non password login and I dont want to do that with the root user !
I have tried to create a new user and use 'setfacl' :
setfacl -m u:someuser:r /var/test
But when I su to 'someuser' I cannot copy the files to my homedir. So I think it wont work for rsync also.
Please help me.
