I'm trying to change the group of several files in Mac OS X using the group
chown my_user:nogroup file.txt
Problem is that it does not change at all, although the nogroup is currently listed in
/etc/group and Directory Service (I checked it with
dscl . list /groups).
What can be happening?
I wanted to do this because XAMMP user and group is
nobody:nogroup, and I needed XAMMP's httpd server to be able to write in some directories. I ended up changing the group to
_www, but curiosity made ask this question.
