Setting Folder Permissions FC2
Posted on 2004-10-02
Hi, I'm having a bit of difficult with permissions. As root, I created a folder /TEST, then i did the following:
chmod 777 /TEST
chown ryan /TEST
chgrp ryan /TEST
then i do ls -l and get
drwxrwxrwx ryan ryan ....... TEST
everything looks good, so I close the terminal window and just use the gnome shell. I browse to the / directory and then try to delete the folder, and i get an error saying that I dont have ther permissions to do this, so I right click on the folder to check the properties and all users have read/write/execue on the folder and i am the owner .
Why can't I just delete this folder? It doesn't seem to make any sense. Am I missing something serious here?
