Unhappy Various problems, apache, workgroup


Ok then, I have had Mandrake 9.2 installed for about two weeks now, I have most things under control.

I have Samba set up and this works perfectly with the other machines on the network, i can view the other Windoze machines etc, however I can't copy files onto the Linux machine from the Windoze machines, it just says i have not got sufficient privaliges?? I have logged in with the same user as the linux machine with the same password. The other minor problem is when I view network neighbourhood through windows, my linux box (Lyra) is under the workgroup "MDKGroup", how do i change this to "mattnet" like the rest of the network???

My other problem occurs while using Apache, I have this installed and i can quite easily view files on my own login, myipaddress/~matt/ this works perfectly, however when trying another login this does not work at all, (myipaddress/~other/) again it says;

"Forbidden


You don't have permission to access /~other on this server.


Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

the public_html directory and files inside have exactly the same privilages as the files in the working user group.

Thankyou for your help, and i apologise for any incorrect terminology.

Mattmole!!

for the samba workgroup as root edit smb.conf

workgroup = whatever you want here

save the file, restart smbd and nmbd.

for apache i'm not up on it, i do recall reading somewhere that you must open port 80, if that helps. there are tons of documentation on apache.
good luck.

glad to be of service sir, wish i knew more about apache, so i could help there. be sure to check out the port 80 thing, and i'm not sure about permissions on a webserver, so have a look around for that as well. i'd also take a look through the security forum here so you'll be able to secure the server.
good luck.
