I have a Samba server which has a few shares, one being the wwwroot folder for an Apache web server on the same box.This share works great with the login jjohnson (and password) in Windoze however when I mount it in linux (via fstab, entry posted below) permissions are strictly root everything. How do I mimic the Windoze way so I can edit the files on the webserver without access denied errors? I know I could change the permissions of the folders for the wwwroot share but I'd prefer not to change the users or groups attributes because it makes me uneasy for security reasons.
//192.168.1.14 /mnt/wwwroot smbfs username=jjohnson,password=X,user 0 0
Thanks for any help,

assuming you want the permissions to be set for userx, you could try:
//192.168.1.14 /mnt/wwwroot smbfs username=jjohnson,password=X,uid=$USER, 0 0
Not sure if $USER will expand properly, or if you need to replace with an actual username. *shrug* Give both of them a shot.
Or, you could just set a decent mask for the files.
//192.168.1.14 /mnt/wwwroot smbfs username=jjohnson,password=X,fmask=0777, 0 0

Still nothing works... Tried setting gid to users and uid to jjohnson (I have the same user on my client as well). The umask doesn't do anything either. However when I do smb://192.168.1.14/wwwroot all works fine. Also if i'm root on the client machine I can do whatever if I go through the fstab mount, so there must be some stupid permission thing on the client side we're missing here :twisted:
