Root User using Freshclam command cannot write to directory.
When I log on a root and attempt to issue the command ‘Freshclam’ to upgrade the virus definitions it attempts or create a new file with a definition name.
I get a message stating that the directory isn’t writable.
The user and group access rights are as follows:
USER = read, write, execute
Group = read, write, execute
All = read, execute.
The only way I can get around this is by applying a 777 which would be read, write and execute for all.
Now, I have a group define with several user ids in it including Root.
How do I connect the group with the directory/file so I don’t have to apply a 777 access right to group users could issue the Freshclam command.
