Hi everyone. I just got a subscription to Dreamhost today. I made a shell account. When I typed “ls” to see the list of files and directories, I saw:

Maildir logs

I accidentally went up one level and I saw a bunch of other folders that I think belong to other users.

I know that shell sessions are logged so I didn’t snoop around. But is it possible that others see my files?


As far as I am aware you only get access to your own directory. Even though it is possible to see the other users by doing ls/home you can only get access to your own

Get [color=#00CC00]$97 DISCOUNT[/color] with [color=#CC0000]DISCOMBO97[/color] >> More Codes

When you change to other’s folder and browse, it will show that permission denied. So no worry.

FULL_97_OFF <-CLICK = host 1 yr for $22.4

Great. Thanks guys :slight_smile:

It’s always a surprise the first time you see that.

Wholly - Use promo code WhollyMindless for full 97$ credit. Let me know if you want something else!
