I have a relatively basic question about setting permissions for directories.
On a server, I have three directories, A, B, and C, and I have three users X, Y, and Z. User X owns directory A, Y owns B, and Z owns C. Pretty straightforward. I'd like to configure the directories such that X, Y, and Z have full permissions to their respective directories, but in such a way where X can read and write to all three directories, but users Y and Z can only read/write to their own directories. How would I do that?
The reason I'm asking is because I currently have lighttpd (user "www-data", group "www-data") configured to read out of its own directory (/var/www, owned by www-data) which also contains symlinks to the _HTTP folder in the home directories of two other users, which are owned by them. I want lighttpd to be able to read/write to both user's _HTTP folders, but neither of the other two users should be able to access, read, write, or execute the other's files. I've locked down /home so that the user's names can't be listed, but I don't have an ideal setup because each of the user's directories are globally read/writable as a workaround for this problem. Obviously I want to minimize access and secure things as much as possible.
Any assistance would be appreciated.submitted by DemandsBattletoads

Hello, I have searched through hours of forums and nothing has worked, so I have come here. I am running Kali Linux in virtual box. I have an AWUS036NHR usb adapter. I have set it up as a bridged adapter in Vbox setting but it does not appear in the lusb list. I can access the internet, but can find no indication that I am connected other than I can use the browser. I am relatively new to Linux and was hoping for some help. I have tried the following:
- changing the Vbox settigns
- ifconfig wlan0 up
- Based off a youtube vid, I downloaded compact-wireless-2010-06-26-p.tar.bz2 from the kali wikia
dmesg has revealed no errors and my adapter is not in the rfkill list.
If this is the wrong place to post this, I apologize and would ask to kindly be directed towards the proper sub for this question.submitted by ROFLicious

Hey guys noob here, so I downloaded the iso file on my USB drive and changed my BIOS settings to restart with USB. This worked fine and I installed Linux Mint. After installation the system restarted but instead of giving me the option to choose windows 7 or linux , it took me back to the installation part of Linux.
Now I can't access my BIOS menu to switch the start up process from USB to normal. Neither can I access my windows. Is there a way to fix this? I am using an Asus windows 7 64 bitsubmitted by youngballer
