I have one file owned by user: “ruler”
and another user: “tzook”
now I have one file that is owned by “ruler” and by group “deployers”
here is the file:
-rwxrwxr-- 1 ruler deployers 3040 Oct 28 12:53 fabfile.py
now when I am the user ruler there is no problem editing, viewing etc
but when I am user “tzook”
that the output of –>
$ tzook sudo www-data ruler deployers
tzook sudo www-data ruler deployers
so you can see the user tzook is in the group “deployers”
so why cant I edit or view the file?
I get “permission denied” when I use:
$ ls -la fabfile.py
Make sure you have execute permissions in the directory.
Check your permissions by:
ls -ld .
If the directory is not owned by group ‘deployers’, chgrp it:
chgrp deployers .
Then give the group permissions read/execute permissions:
chmod g+rx .
