OK so I understand this is probably a super newby question but I've been playing around with this and trying everything within my knowledge to get this sorted but just cannot figure it out.
Basically I'm wanting to create a file system on my local server to allow me and other people to access using samba but the permissions are killing me.
Basically I want the structure to be this:
Share files (accessible by everyone)
User 1 (rwx by only me)
-user 2 (rwx by me and user 2)
--user 3 (rwx by me, user 2 and user 3)
--user 4 (rwx by me, user 2 and user 4)
--user 5 (rwx by me, user 2 and user 5)
Folder hierarchy would be user 1 folder at the top, then user 2 would be a subfolder of that, and then users 3,4,5 would be subfolders of user 2.
So I think I understand the samba permissions being that I can just do 'valid users = user 1, user 2... Etc' but the actual Linux permissions are beyond me
