I am trying to give 2 users rwx access to a new shared directory i have created that will hold some shared documents. The directory is
/srv/shared The 2 users are Mason and Bill that will be accessing the files. I would like both users to be able to rwx any newly created files/directories by each other.
I have added Bill to the group Mason with
sudo usermod -a -G mason bill
I then changed the
/srv/shared ownership to Mason and group Mason with
sudo chown mason:mason /srv/shared
I then tried creating a directory in
/srv/shared logged in as bill with mkdir
/srv/shared/test but got access denied. I tried giving the directory chmod 755 permissions but that still gave Bill access denied when creating files. When i gave chmod permissions 777 Bill could then create directories and files without an issue.
Just trying to work out what I have done wrong for this to only work with 777 permissions which is not really what i want to allow?
