FTP Account Permissions - No Rights

Nov 2, 2009

I own a dedicated server and have installed plesk on it. With the domain, plesk creates an FTP account to use for that domain. When you use that user/pass it only allows access to the

directory, which is fine.

Now the problem is that the account has very limited permissions. It didn't let me write to any of the folders unless I chmodded them to '777', and now doesn't let me overwrite any files unless I login as root and chmod the individual files to '777'. How can I set this accounts permissions to allow full writing, and reading for everything it has access to? I don't want everything to have full permissions for obvious reasons.

Permissions With An Account

May 24, 2007

This is what you get when you go to this one site on the server in your browser:

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

This is a site in a reseller's account. The reseller had suspended it for non-payment. The account owner paid their fees, and the reseller unsuspended it. But now the site can't be reached.

I chowned and chmodded the account, but that didn't fix it.

Creating An FTP Account With Permissions

May 27, 2008

I have a dedicated server with no control panel. I have a main, root FTP account. But now I'd like to create an FTP account with access to just one folder.

For example, I want the FTP account to only be able to view and upload files only to "mysite.com/special/upload"

It would also be nice if the new FTP user could only modify/delete the files that he uploaded.

How To Edit FTP User Permissions On A CPanel Account

May 15, 2008

My Pink Floyd website has a photo section of rare concert pictures that our members upload. We have about 3,000 of these pictures, that our members upload via an FTP server that is hosted on a simple cPanel web hosting account. Someone logged into the account and not only deleted all the pictures, but uploaded obscene pictures and index.html files to some really nasty stuff.

We delete all the obscene stuff, but before we re-upload all the pictures I need to know...

On a cPanel account is there a way to have the FTP User only able to upload files and not edit/delete/change? Somehow we can edit their permission?

I asked HostGator about this and the ChatTech said this cannot be done, and I was a bit surprised. I could easily do this on my own server, but i'm not sure where to start at the user level.

Export Rights

Apr 4, 2007

I've heard there are certain computer equipment which are not allowed to be taken outside the united states, like routers and such.

If I plan on buying a server in the united states and taking it overseas, what are the rules and regulations? Like is there a website where I can get more information regarding this issue?

Feb 9, 2015

I want to grant different access rights for certain folders to a large group of users of my apache WebDav server.There are access control lists for each folder on the server. Based on the rights in the access control lists the users should only have access to the folders listed in the ACL lists.In addition to that some users have only "read", some also "write" rights for the folders.How can I set up the described access rights on my WebDav server?

FTP + Permissions

Jun 3, 2009

I'm trying to get FTP working on a FreeBSD 7.1 box running ProFTPd.

The service runs but the issue is that the users cannot write to their home dirs. The server returns a 550 error.

Previously ProFTPd ran as user and group of "www" but I changed it to "nobody", which did not change anything.

I'm sure the issue is that of the home dirs for the users being owned by the users themselves and the service account not having access to write in that directory.

I'm not sure what is best to do here. Do I lift permissions so everyone can write to the home dirs? or is there a better way?

777 Permissions For Www

Jun 2, 2009

Let me start off with saying: I haven't had any suspicious activity, nor do I think I was compromised.

I logged in as root, and was simply clicking around my dedicated server and came across a few folders with permissions at 777. ALL are above /public_html

Irregardless, is this safe? I recall reading a bunch of topics on here, that /tmp needs to be hardened. Isn't this also above /public_html?

For one example:
/var/tmp is chmod to 077
..inside is a bunch of sess_ files

Is this folder open to hacking?

Web Permissions

Jan 19, 2007

when I setup a server I don't really care about permissions, I do lot of nasty chmod 777 * and stuff to easily get away with permission issues, since I'm the only one with access anyway.

But for a server that may be used for webhosting, how do I go about setting permissions in home directories so that programs like apache/php can still read/write to the user's web data? I'm guessing I need to add the user apache to each user's group and chmod 770 but I'm not too sure how to go about that, or if that's even how I should do it.

IIS Permissions

Mar 27, 2008

how permissions work in IIS in basic english

I spent ages trying to get a crm system working on my server and it only worked without errors when I changed the anonymous user privileges to "change" instead of "read".

Now this is meant to be insecure right? But my question is.... what exactly can go wrong with this configuration? In what ways is it insecure?

Also... correct me if I'm wrong but do:

- Web server permissions: only affect what scripts can run locally etc... and

- User / file level permissions: Protect against anonomous access changes from the net?

VPN- Permissions On /dev/net/tun

Jul 4, 2007

I have installed openvpn on the machine but i am having issues. I had to create /dev/net/tun manually and get permission errors on the device. I installed the openvpn rpm from [url].

on service startup i get the following log

Jul 4 22:03:09 gizmo openvpn[9517]: Note: Cannot open TUN/TAP dev /dev/net/tun: Permission denied (errno=13)
Jul 4 22:03:09 gizmo openvpn[9517]: Note: Attempting fallback to kernel 2.2 TUN/TAP interface
Jul 4 22:03:09 gizmo openvpn[9517]: Cannot allocate TUN/TAP dev dynamically
Jul 4 22:03:09 gizmo openvpn[9517]: Exiting

i installed from an rpm package on my cent0s 4 virtual machine, i followed the tutorial here, but to summarise after installing:

yum install openvpn -y
#Now check that it works
service openvpn start
#service fails - reason permission error on /dev/net/tun

running ifconfig i do not get a TUN/TAP device listed, im guessing as i haave never used vps before but i presume if all was working well i would get an additional interface listed alongside vnet0?

i have asked my vps provider to check i have TUN access, however in the meantime i would like to check there is nothing fishy with my setup?

Ftp Permissions

Jul 24, 2007

Running LAMP, CentOS and webmin.

I've created a user and group for FTPing to a new domain. Problem is that when using Filezilla I get 'critical transfer error' after uploading files.

I have no problem with doing uploads as root, so this would appear to be permission problems.

So my question is, what do I need to do with the ftp user / or group in order to give appropriate permissions to place files under the public_html directory? Either through SSH or via Webmin...

FTP Permissions

May 29, 2007

I have some folders and files which simply won't let me upload, rewrite, rename, change permissions etc. Any action I try to perform on them simply gives me an error such as

550 Could not change perms on /public_html/foldername: Operation not permitted

The current permissions seem fine (755) and cpanel's file manager isn't having any luck either.

It's for a zen-cart site

Machine is running Cent OS with the following;

cPanel Version 11.2.17-CURRENT
cPanel Build 12566
Theme x3
Apache version 1.3.37 (Unix)
PHP version 4.4.6
MySQL version 4.1.22-standard

May 21, 2009

existing account have enabled catch all account automatically & i don't know how?

Main >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings
Default catch-all/default address behavior for new accounts. "fail" is usually the best choice if you are getting mail attacks.

currently it is tick marked on fail

And forwarders has been set to e.g jeetu@jeetu.info to domain automatically & also i don't how?

when i try to delete this forwarder its shown deleted successfully


Email Forwarding Maintenance

jeetu@jeetu.info's mail will no longer be redirected to jeetu.

then again i checked forwarder & found that forwarder is not deleted why?

what could be the problem?

due to this our clients are facing out of disk space running problem & they are not able to get future emails

1. now i want to disable catch all account for all existing accounts at one go

2. also i want to terminate forwarders for all existing users at one go
Let me know how to do this

Correct Permissions To Use

Aug 27, 2009

I am in the process of setting up my server and have come to the stage where I am uploading my actual website scripts and files. I am a little confused however as to what permissions and file/directory ownership my website files should be set to.

My web root is set to 755 (rwx/r-x/r-x) with Owner as root, and Group as root. All files within the web root are set to 744 (rwx/r--/r--) with the owner and group the same as the web root. The permissions set allow php scripts to function but I am not sure if the group should be set to root on all these files, is this correct?

My site users have no ftp access if that makes any difference to ownership.

Crontab Permissions

Mar 18, 2008

In trying to setup a cronjob on a new server I notice that cPanel tells me that usr/bin/crontab permissions are wrong and that they need to be changed to 4755.

When I log in to the server with WinSCP and attempt to change the permissions it just doesn't do it ... it looks like it's doing it, no errors, but it just leaves it the same!
