Chgrp problems


I created a new subdomain today, and assigned it to a user in user in a new group.

Following the wiki, I did the command:

chgrp -R Group_Name /home/UserName

But I am getting “Operation not permitted”. I did some searching and saw some information on chown to get ownership, so Im not too sure if that’s my problem, or my own naiveness on SSH :slight_smile:


It won’t let you change the group on the logs directory. I suggest you try chgrp (without the -R) on /home/UserName, then go in and chgrp -R on the remaining files and directories.

I also think you have to do this as that new user, and not as yourself.
