Folder permissions help


I have a folder on my Redhat 9 server called /share, and a user named "chris".

I just need to add that user to the permissions on the folder /share - but can't quite figure out how. He's not in any groups.

Also, I'm telnetted in (SSH disabled, remote server) so I'll have to do it as SU in the terminal.

Insight appreciated.

as root, do:

# usermod -G <group> chris

without the <>

and to find out what groups you have, as root, type

# groups

Good luck...

Sorry, forgot to metion. To find out what group owns the folder, do a ls -al in the / directory where share resides. It will list the owner and group of the directory.

I got all this from the help menu in Gnome, so anybody can feel free to correct me or elaborate if needed...

Good luck...
