I started to use Ubuntu two weeks ago, I still have some difficulty in understanding the whole world of Linux.
I'm in front of the following scenario:
I have a Windows computer running 12.04 in a VirtualBox, I've installed in Ubuntu
proftpd, because I've limited the Ubuntu HD to 8GB. I had the idea to use a shared Windows folder to use as my main FTP storage place.
/etc/fstab I've added the following line
//192.168.0.10/D$/ /mnt/FTP cifs user,umask=0022,gid=0,uid=0,suid,username="####",password=##### 0 0
I can mount my partition with
mount /mnt/FTP, I can access, but I cannot create anything in the directory.
The permission of the directory is
dr-xr-xr-x 0 root root.
I want to have the permissions, but how can I do it?
Was my fault to not test direct by Linux before posting, I've verified if I could create or change anything direct in ssh while I was writing, first of all I've tested using FTP.
I've tried right now to
chmod -R 777 /mnt/FTP, and I got permission denied error, I'm logged in my virtual Linux with ssh.
I've unmounted the
/mnt/FTP and I could
chmod 777 the folder, but the permission of the containing files inside the
And can't change their permissions. How can I solve this problem?
