I have a very frustrating problem and I can't seem to find a solution. I am
running redhat 8.0GPL and samba 2.2.8 on two linux boxes. The first linux
box is my storage (used by multiple pc's). The second is my web-server
running apache and php. The web-server recieves files which are meant to be
stored to the first linux box and processed by other computers on the
The following is the smb.conf file.
encrypt passwords = yes
guest account = smbuser
hide unreadable = yes
hide dot files = yes
log level = 3
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
netbios name = myserver
security = user
server string = "Development Storage"
socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192
time server = yes
wins support = yes
workgroup = myworkgroup
browseable = yes
create mode = 0666
directory mode = 0777
directory mask = 0775
guest ok = yes
guest only = yes
path = /share/webdocuments
read only = no
I can connect to the webdocs directory from a windows box, browse read, edit
and create files/directories.
on the second linux box I use automout as follows
/share /etc/auto.share --timeout=600
The problem is the automount seems to work, the directory is available and I
can browse, view and edit the files.
However I cannot create files in the in the share unless I am logged in as
root. This means that I cannot recieve files with PHP and push them off to
the storage server.
I have tried different settings all to no avail. I have tried everything I
can think of and can't get this to work.
Can anybody help me.
