Yes, this is OpenSusue
Yes, the file is in a folder under /srv/www
Thus the group is www
Looked at the group members, it is a bunch of users (people) not a web service or some web user.. if this makes any sense.
The file was created by one person, is owned by this person, is placed under /srv/www/some-folder/ ..
Another person wants to make changes to the file (was asked to by the file owner)
I added this person to the www group
The www has no write access to this file, i hesitate to give the www group write access because i was worried www was some default web-server user and that this could be hacked via the internet some how. But i dont see any "web" or default-looking member in this group it only has people/human user names in it.
is it a bad idea giving the group www write access to the /srv/www/some-folder/ directory and all its contents?
