Permission setting in RH9

Hi everyone,

I have just installed RH9 for the first time ever (long time windows user) and have some issues with permissions.

I am setting a web server (apache 2, php4.3, mysql 4.??) and have put phpmyadmin on there. When i tried to see the directoory from another machine, I got access denied. I fixed the permission on that directory so it now works but now i want to set the permission for everything in the directory.

Is ther a way to set the permissions in a directory like you can in win2k?? (sorry for mentioning a microsoft thingy)

Thank you for that. I put a part fix by letting everybody have access. This could be bad as I work in a school and there are lots of young hackers out there!!!

I shall change the way apache grants access and block all but the 2 systems in the IT support office.

That will solve it!!
