Ubuntu Samba Issues - need suggestion
Okay, here's the situation. Wanting to setup a Ubuntu 6.06 server to run a mid-size Web site. I want to minimize the administration of this site and in doing so, I want to share the /var/www/apache-default directory using Samba so that users can manipulate their HTML using simple copy and paste. I've done this for years using RHEL and SuSE; however, I'm inexperienced with Ubuntu and the sudo function.
I've created the Samba share and all is well on the network, we can access and read files but of course, as you may already know, we can't write to the directory. I know that this is a privilege issue and normally, I place an entry in smb.conf to force unix user = root so that users can read/write to the directory. So, how can this be achieved with Ubuntu? I'm still grasping this Sudo stuff!
