User and Group Access to /httpd

User and Group Access to /httpd

Post by James Bank » Wed, 19 Nov 1997 04:00:00

Just upgraded to Redhat 4.2. with apache.  Users in the httpd group no
longer have the permission to send files to the httpd directories.  Is
apache controlling this level of access?



1. cannot set up UMASK or groups so that users from one group cannot access other groups


First let me describe what I would like to set up to clarify things:


I would like to set up 3 groups, lets call them A, B, C. Users from A should
have access files created by users in B or C. Users in B or C cannot access
files created by users in A. Also users in B or C should not have access to
each others files.

How would I set up Umask to handle this? I've tried to create a primary
group for all and secondary groups to reflect the permissions I'm after, but
to no avail.

Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance.
