Thread: Permissions problem

  1. Permissions problem

    I can see and read the samba share on a Fedora Core 4 box, but I can't add,
    modify, delete anything neither directories nor files.

    How do I enable file writing, modification and deletion?

    You really need to read the manual pages for smb.conf, but I'm wondering if
    you need to restart your SMB services to re-read the latest edits to your
    smb.conf file?
