How to change ownership of a drive?
Hi I installed a new harddrive and everything is working fine.
The only problem is that whenever I try to download anything directly to it from the internet, I get an error message saying that I don't have permission to write to that drive.
The thing is though I can write to it if i move files to it locally.
Here is the fatab entry I have for that device:
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/hdb1 vfat auto,users,exec,umask=000,shortname=mixed,quiet 0 0
Also I tried changing ownership of the drive by doing:
# chown -R raid517 /dev/hdb1
# chgrp -R raid517 /dev/hdb1
# chown -R raid517 /mnt/hdb1
# chgrp -R raid517 /mnt/hdb1
But regardless of this whenever I look at the ownership of the drive and the mount point it always reads /root/root.
As I intend to use this drive as an FTP drive, being able to write to it via the web would be cool.
Basically i just want read write, run riot and do whatever the hell I please permission on the drive. It won't store any important stuff, so I just want as much access to it as I can get.
