I am using Samba 3.6.6 on Debian Wheezy.
I want to be able to change www files on my dev server using my macbook. So I setup samba and made a share for the /var/www directory.
I added the users bart & root to samba to connect. And connect using command K and then smb://192.168.2.100 (my samba server).
As apache uses www-data as a user and group for the www files I use force user and force group in samba to prevent errors in the rights.
However it does force the group www-data, but doesn't force the user. Every file I create is being owned by root in the group www-data.
To seek for errors I tailed the logs in /var/log/samba and only found an error in the log.smbd when restarting the samba service. See the log here:
smbd version 3.6.6 started. Copyright Andrew Tridgell and the Samba Team 1992-2011 [2013/09/23 11:14:22.601031, 0] printing/print_cups.c:110(cups_connect) Unable to connect to CUPS server localhost:631 - Connection refused [2013/09/23 11:14:22.602215, 0] printing/print_cups.c:487(cups_async_callback) failed to retrieve printer list: NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL
And here is my smb.conf:
[global] server string = %h server map to guest = Bad User obey pam restrictions = Yes pam password change = Yes passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u passwd chat = *Enter\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *Retype\snew\s*\spassword:* %n\n *password\supdated\ssuccessfully* . unix password sync = Yes syslog = 0 log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 dns proxy = No usershare allow guests = Yes panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d idmap config * : backend = tdb [homes] comment = Home Directories valid users = %S create mask = 0700 directory mask = 0700 browseable = No [printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba create mask = 0700 printable = Yes print ok = Yes browseable = No [print$] comment = Printer Drivers path = /var/lib/samba/printers [www] comment = www path = /var/www/ valid users = bart, root admin users = bart, root write list = bart, root force user = www-data force group = www-data read only = No
I even tried adding www-data to the valid users as well as the admin users and the write list. This of course did not have any effect.
Can you help me out? Thanks in advance!
