I have a directory that 2 different groups have access to. When one
group writes to the folder it retains the permissions of that group. I
need the permissions to change to the permissions of the directory. 

I thought I could add a crontab in and run a little script every 1
minute to set the correct permissions. The script does what it should
when ran by the cmdline but not when I try to run it from the crontab.

Is it not possible to run chmod and chown on a folder by using a

The entry into my /etc/crontab file looks like this:

0       *       *       *       root    /bin/fixperms

My fixperms file looks like this:


chmod -R 777 /usr/local/ServerFiles
chown -R staff /usr/local/ServerFiles

Am I doing this right?
