Write Permission Question in RHAS 4.0


Greetings,

I need to open up a directory on my Linux server for group & other to read and write to this directory. However, the directory is owned by another group. Would 775 (chmod) be sufficient enough or ???

Please help.

Thank you in advance.

J

You need to clarify a little. Which groups need to read/write? Which individual users need to read/write?

Here are your options:
1. Use chmod to give more permissions, for a directory 7 means they can look in the directory, they can read and they can write.
2. Create another group that includes all of the users for both groups.

I have a group called, contractor1 and contractor2. However, the directory owned by usergrp1 (/tmp/logs/). I need this directory to have read/write/execute permission, so that "others" or "group" can write & read from.

Sorry if I didn't make it clear before.

Thanks,
J
