Hm, just tried it again and everything worked fine. Sorry, not sure what I did wrong the first time! Thanks :)

This doesn't seem to be working for me. setfacl and getfacl are returning the expected output, but only directories (not files) within the parent directory are inheriting the acl, and even then my umask is taking precedence over the default (if they aren't world readable, the default:other::r-- doesn't let another user access them). Have I missed something obvious?

@BeeDee I did see that. I'm interesting in other ways to do it, hopefully using ACLs. I'd rather not check/change my umask on every cd, or override bash functions.

comment How do I create a read only MySQL user for backup purposes with mysqldump?
Oops... from the man page for mysqldump: mysqldump does not dump the INFORMATION_SCHEMA database. If you name that database explicitly on the command line, mysqldump silently ignores it Seems like either the man page is out of date (and it does raise a warning), or automysqlbackup is performing some additional checks on the dump for information_schema. Not sure which it is, but it's not related to user grants.
