SOLVED: Unable to chmod

Postby modem7 » Wed Aug 08, 2018 12:00 pm

Heya,

I noticed that one of my shares (maybe more, but resolve one and the rest can be resolved using the same resolution), the contents are set to root:root.

When I attempt to do the following:

chmod -R 775 /var/hda/files/oldhd

I get the below messages:
neither symbolic link '/var/hda/files/oldhd/xxx' nor referent has been changed

I am however, able to do things individually (etc: chmod -R 775 /var/hda/files/oldhd/plink.exe)

Thoughts?

Are you doing the command as root or using sudo?

I have had times with Linux where I have to be root user to get things working correctly.

No problem.

Marking as resolved.
