I am brand new to linux and Samba. I just installed samba for my first time. I set the path to a second hd in my system. I also set the permissions of that drive to 0777 but I any time I try to write to that drive (locally or via a network connection/samba connection) I get a permissions error. Any idea why?
In my sbm.conf, in the section I set the path I have:
read only = no
which I think is correct. I also have.
force user = username
force group = username
Could this be causing my problem since the owner and group of that drive is root (not username)? Is it smart or normal in linux to assign a drive's owner and group to a user not the root? I only have and plan on having one user for this computer.
Thank you for your help.
