i have mandrake 10 running a bf:v server. when installing bf:v server, i had to change to root.
the server runs excellent, but i have one problem.
i have a stats program on a different machine that needs the logs files that bf:v creates. i have used the "chmod -R 777 /dirname" command to change all the files in the log dir so that anybody can use them. this works for the ones that are already in there, but as soon as bf:v creates a new file, it has the little lock on it because it was created by root. is there anyway i can make all new files in this directory able to be viewed/edited by all users without having to use "chmod -R 777 /dirname" all the time?
thanks in advance for your time
