permission


Hi,

I have two user A and B

I want to give full permission to user B on user A's abc folder like

/home/a/abc

I added user B to user A group

and set permission on abc folder like below

chmod 770 /home/a/abc

but whenever I try to enter in A abc folder using cd (from user B) I get following error

permission denied .

Pls. help

It may be SELinux that's stopping you. Try "setenforce 0" and try again.
