I have a folder which I want members of a group to be able to read, write, and execute in. I made a group named "potteryclass", and made it the group for the folder. I've added users "john" and "bob" to it. Here's how it looks:
$ ls -al drwxrwxr-x 2 john potteryclass 4096 Dec 4 04:22 projects $ getent group potteryclass potteryclass:x:1002:john,bob
This is how I did it:
sudo addgroup potteryclass sudo usermod -a -G potteryclass john sudo usermod -a -G potteryclass bob sudo chown -R :potteryclass /home/projects
but user "bob" still cannot create new files in there.
What did I miss?
