Able to copy and write to files with mount -t smbfs shared folder but not with apache user. I mounted with user apache but still cannot copy files. Need help ASAP

I mounted share directory with mount -t smbfs -o usrename=apache, password=apache, fmask=777,umask=000,dmask=000  source  destination

The mount is successful and can see directories and files.  I can copy files to and from with root in linux but when I log in as apache it gives me permission denied.  i am trying to copy files via httpd which has apache userid.  Need help ASAP.

Do you have  SELinux enabled?

If you do a ls -l on the mount point who owns the directory and what the permissions?

Hi,

It seems that the owner of the directory is notthe user apache and then again you don't have permission to write in there.

You'd better check your /etc/samba passwd file to see what your users are mapped in linux. Change file and group permissions as required. Though I won't succest you to do thet you can change the directory prrmission to 777 for testing purposes only but I would definitely nto sucggest you to leave it this way.

I have found the solution.  This is pretty bizarre.  When adding samba user thru command line and mounting, no permissions were given but when I removed the user from command line and then added it in the GUI interface it worked fine.  I am not sure why the command line did not take effect.  I stumbled on this when I was configuring apache.  I had configured the .conf file but it was still not working properly so I removed what ever was in the GUI interface and then restarted and it came up fine.  There seems to be an issue with the GUI and the command line.  Thanks everyone for your help.
