backup with rsync
I'm running ISPConfig on Fedora Core 5.
I have another Fedora installation which I will use for backup.
In ISPConfig all dirs under /var/www is owned by web1/2/3....
I connect to the ISPConfig server with the user "john". But "john" hasn't access to the /var/www folders. I get the message: "rsync: opendir "/var/www/web1/ftp/incoming" failed: Permission denied (13)" on all dirs.
I have tried to:
usermod -G apache/root john
but continue to get the samme error
Anyone who has a solution? Thx
have you checked that john now actually has root powers?
I come mainly from the debian camp, but perhaps you can do sudo john, and then check whoami to see if john does have root powers.
whoami output for user "john":
How do I assign a group for john, like root?
I guess you will have to run the rsync job with root priveliges. I recommend to do this over SSH with e.g. key based authentication.
I just googled a bit, maybe this howto helps you. If I remember correctly, there might be a howto on howoforge too that Falko has written some time ago.
