I have a directory called 'scans' that is owned by 'master', but I
want to allow 'customer' to FTP images to that directory. This is
the way I have permissions set:
# ls -l
drwxrwxr-x 5 master customer 251904 Apr 20 10:29 scans
The problem is that when customer ftp's a file to the directory,
the permissions end up like this:
-rw-r----- 1 customer customer 772584 Apr 20 15:28 image.jpg
When a process run by 'master' tries to copy this file to another
directory (also owned by master), I get the following:
# cp scans/image.jpg thumbs/image.jpg
cp: scans/image.jpg: Permission denied
The only solution that occurs to me smells like a newbie kludge: to
have a root cron job periodically chown all the images to
master:customer. This seems like the proverbial sledgehammer. There
must be a better way?
Any thoughts, much appreciated!
Well, I did figure out one way that seems reasonable... since I am
using pureftpd, I changed the upload mask in the pureftpd
configuration so new files are created with permissions like:
-rw-r--r-- 1 customer customer 93177 Apr 20 20:12 image.jpg
This seems like a pretty good approach, but if there's a better one,
I'm all ears!
