If they want to move reports from 'new ftp user' to Report folder of 'test user' is it possible?
Also do the application will able to execute the report even though it has been placed by different ftp user.
They can copy the report to 'new ftp users" folder but they can not copy to Report folder for that you need to give 777 permission to Report folder
or using test user you need to copy to Report folder.
Now I need to create a new user for FTP purpose only so that a user can only read and can place files/reports but will not be able to delete or change locations of any file.
Please help me with commands as I feel that i have to change the earlier 777 permission also.
Unix, unlike some other operating systems, does not have a specific delete privilege in the standard file permission repertoire. It might be enough to set a SUID sticky bit on the directory, so that it works similar to /tmp, where users have the permission to delete or write their own files, but not those of others, for instance:
chmod 1777 /ftp/upload
If you need more control, you will have to configure and enable ACL on the filesystem.
Some of the access restriction options are typically governed by your ftp server configuration, for instance /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf. You may also check the ftpd_selinux man page, in case you are using ftpd. Since you don't tell us what you are using, no further help can be provided.
Hello all Oracle Gurus,
While creating a clone I gave 777 permission to every folder (chmod -R 777 TEST) as I was facing permission errors during cloning.
Our Application main folder is TEST which have all tops and tier in it (apps, inst).
For FTP we are using oracle user which has 777 permission on each file (chown -R appl:dba TEST).
We are using this user for ftp and accidently deleted one folder.
I am looking if it is possible to create additional ftp user who can drop files in required folders e.g. AU_TOP but can not delete or modify anything from any location.
Thanks in advance.
It's a typical dropbox, which allows anyone to write files, but not to modify or download. It sets the group ownership on all files to "nogroup." However, it will also not allow users to get a directory listing.
Your configuration options and possibilities will depend on your FTP server software, which is typically not limited to setting filesystem permissions only and provides its own security mechanism to the client. Unless you tell us what you are using...
