I'm self studying for my Linux+/LPIC-1 and I was working through the textbook titled "CompTIA Linux+ Guide to Linux certification" in conjunction with some video courses when this question arose. I googled around with terms such as "linux file ownership guest user". I can't seem to conjure up an answer without booting up a vm and going exploring in Linux.
I have very minimal experience with guest users in Linux and my questions are:
- do the permissions and ownership for guest users vary when compared to normal users?
- What occurs when a guest user creates a file? or is it expected that guest users don't have thoughs permissions?
- Is it bad practice to allow guest users to create files under specific directories?
I would like to kindly thank everyone who has allocated their valuable time to this question. Hopefully one day I can be as knowledgable as some of you and contribute back to the community :).
