I seem to be having some permissions issues that I am not sure I completely understand. I am simply trying to copy a directory containing files from one place to another. The user is a part of the following groups: Code: $ pw usershow dom4in.ss4rv3r -P Login Name: MYUSER #1002 Group: wheel #0 Full Name: MY USER Home: /home/MYUSER Class: Shell: /bin/sh Office: [None] Work Phone: [None] Home Phone: [None] Acc Expire: [None] Pwd Expire: [None] Groups: www The destimation directory /usr/local/www/apache22/data has the following permissions: (NOTE: I set it to everything trying to get it to work) Code: drwxrwxrwx 2 www www - 512 Feb 25 00:23 data/ The source directory /usr/home/MYUSER/www has the following permissions: (NOTE: I set it to everything trying to get it to work) Code: drwxrwxrwx 2 MYUSER wheel 512 Feb 24 01:47 www The file has the following permissions: (NOTE: I set it to everything trying to get it to work) Code: -rwxrwxrwx 1 MYUSER wheel - 450 Feb 25 00:53 template.html* The following command is failing due to permissions: Code: $ cp /usr/home/MYUSER/www/* /usr/local/www/apache22/data cp: /usr/local/www/apache22/data/template.html: Permission denied I think I might be having a fundemental misunderstanding of how the permissins work in freebsd. Should the above command have worked because all permissins were set on the destination directory? Do I need to change permissions on every directory between the two? That does not seem right.
