Dear freebsd-questions,

I want all members of the "webmasters" group to be able to modify my web documents directory /www.

Here's my user, a webmaster:

But this happens when I am logged in as sabshere:

$echo "whatev" > index.html
-bash: index.html: cannot overwrite existing file

I think this has nothing to do with file permissions. Instead, the 'noclobber' option is probably enabled in your bash settings, so the shell refuses to overwrite existing files. Find the directive 'set -o noclobber' in your shell's startup files and comment it out, or if this behaviour is the default, try to override it with 'set +o noclobber'.

Hope this helps.
