File permissions


Hey guys,

I am running SUSE 10 and i set up the vsftpd.

I want to give access to a user from group "1" to files from group "2", but without change him to the group 2.
Is it possible?

Also, is possible when i am giving full access to a folder no one can delete the files?
I want specific users only to write but without access to delete files.



Thanks in advanced.

Create a group 3 with access to both files.

As for the writing thing writing is the same as deleting, for example you could open a document in a text editor and rewrite the file with no code, it would be deleted with just the wrapper left.

Thank you for your reply.

Ok i understand what you said, but my problem is how the group have access?
I mean, the permission for the folder is rwxrwx--- , and i don't want to give access to the others.
So, how i can config the new, group 3, to have access to both?

Why don't you put the user from group 1 to group 2 as well? Don't change his group, just put him in the other one too.
