I'm trying to set folder permissions on a linux machine. I have this primary folder: /home/master/staging
This folder houses subfolders containing user sftp drop points. I need to set folder permissions for this.
I have the following users:
MASTER sftpuser1 sftpuser2
Master's home directory is /home/MASTER
I have done the following to the folder /home/master/staging/:
drwxrwx---. 19 MASTER MASTER 4096 Apr 14 02:21 . drwxrwx---. 6 MASTER MASTER 199 Mar 5 12:20 .. drwxrwx---. 2 MASTER MASTER 10 Apr 15 00:51 MASTER drwxrwxr-x. 2 sftpuser1 MASTER 10 Apr 15 00:28 sftpuser1 drwxrwxr-x. 2 sftpuser2 MASTER 10 Feb 15 08:02 sftpuser2
Assuming MASTER is the group owner of group MASTER, I read the following on this:
MASTER "should" be able to read/write all folders sftpuser1 should be able to read/write in folder /staging/sftpuser1 sftpuser2 should be able to read/write in folder /staging/sftpuser2
sftpuser1 and 2 have been set this way:
usermod sftpuser1 -s /bin/false usermod sftpuser1 -d /home/master/staging/sftpuser1 usermod sftpuser2 -s /bin/false usermod sftpuser2 -d /home/master/staging/sftpuser2
With that all being said, neither sftpusers cannot see their own folder using sftp, and user MASTER cannot go into the two sftpuser folders locally. all permission denied.
what am I missing here? The goal is sftpuser1 only sees sftpuser1; sftpuser2 only sees sftpuser2; and MASTER should be able to see all of them. Thanks!
MASTER is now able to see the sftpuser's folders. Group privs fixed that.
