This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to share a directory between two users. The directory is at
/reports. I have created a group (
addgroup reports), changed the group of the directory, changed the permissions of
/reports to allow full access to groups and added the two users to that groups by the following:
mkdir /reports addgroup reports chgrp -R reports /reports chmod -R 770 /reports usermod -a -G reports user1 usermod -a -G reports user2
As user1, running the following, I get a permission denied error.
groups user1 does not show
reports group, but the mapping is there in
but I still get a permission denied error.
