$ whoami meder $ cd /var/www $ sudo mkdir html $ sudo groupadd web $ sudo usermod -a -G web meder $ sudo usermod -a -G web medertest $ sudo chown meder:web html $ sudo chmod -R g+rwx html
The problem is, anytime I create a new file in
/var/www/html even though the group is set to
web, it is only writeable by the original user.
I was given the advice of setting the
umask to be
002 because the default is what causes the problems. But I would have to do this for all users in that group, and as far as I know it would be tedious having all of them modify
~/.bashrc to have
umask 002. Even if I can do it myself with a shell command for all of those users, it still seems too tedious.
Can anyone offer any advice on having a group writeable directory?
