Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Displays the current security groups that each user ID is a member. Note that the "admin" user has an
"admin" security group? Other user IDs can be members of this group but it is not a recommended practice.
When a user ID has "Groups" shown, there is no security group assigned to the user ID as seen by the
"test" user. With the "Groups" setting a user is confined to accessing only their data. 3. Group Admin
A user ID can be given "elevated privileges" where the security changes within the scope of the user ID
can be performed. Such as; changing user quota, password, creating a new user ID. When creating a new
user, the ID is setup for the current security group, the new user ID will also appear on the main
"admin" user list. When the "Group Admin" setting exists no group administrator is assigned.
Can anyone make this clear for me? How should I create my users? With what group? I'm confused and I see no official documentation about it :/.
At the same time, if you guys have good link for ownCloud security, it would be great .
I use ownCloud ONLY to make user share file with poeple outside of our network (In https of course).
This dropdown field is used for creating new ownCloud Security Groups. New or existing groups can be associated
can be associated at this point with a new user ID about the be "Create"d. If a new group is created from this
field is can be associated with existing user IDs further down on the User settings screen.
How was it installed? apt-get or a manual install?
"You’ve probably noticed that the latest ownCloud now includes a Group Admin feature. We added this feature so admins could create users to manage the membership in one or many groups. Now, group admins have the same user management rights as administrators over a specified group, with the exception that they can’t access system settings. And, of course, they can’t override corporate directory usernames and passwords."
