what is "+" in drwxrwxrwx+ ?


I am having some strange issue in CVS server regarding permission implementation but leaving that apart

something strange which I can observe is

earlier when I started working on my cvs repository

the permission were like this
Code:
#ls -l
drwxrwxrwx 5 root root 4096 Nov 17 10:29 cvsroot


But then I used some commands like

Code:
#chown -R root:cvsuser cvsroot
#cd /cvsroot
#chown -R root:cvsuser CVSROOT
and after that neither my cvs checkout is working which returns with bunch of errors

and when I check the permissions on all files
Code:
#ls -l
drwxrwxrwx+ 5 root root 4096 Nov 17 10:29 cvsroot
Also as you can see the group permission is full but when I do
Code:
#getfacl cvsroot
# file: cvsroot
# owner: root
# group: root
user::rwx
group::r-x
other::rwx
I get this which says group has only r-x permission?

So is it due to "+" sign and what does this represents, I tried searching for this on google but there are a bunch of things which I am unaware of so I am asking you guys

Hello,

The '+' most likely means most likely that additional file security is put in place using setfacl. Have a look at these pages for more information:
ACL1
ACL2

Kind regards,

Eric

Thanks for the reply I will go through that file
But what is this with my last problem?
Code:
Code:
#ls -l
drwxrwxrwx+ 5 root root 4096 Nov 17 10:29 cvsroot
#getfacl cvsroot # file: cvsroot # owner: root # group: root user::rwx group::r-x other::rwx
I get this which says group has only r-x permission?

Hi,

I don't know why it shows only read and execute, but you could try to set the appropriate rights using the setfacl command. Does anyone else besides you have access to that server with privileges to change permissions?

Kind regards,

Eric

I found this info and may be helpful

Quote:
The + suffix means the file has an access control list, and is common in any *nix that supports ACLs. Giving ls the -e flag will make it show the associated ACLs after the file.
Code:
$ls -ela
maybe this helps also.

Regards
