I am a Linux newbie, but everything has been going rather well. However, I've been scouring the internet for quite sometime today and was unable to find anything on my problem...
My networked samba share will only let me write files to the main directory of the share, I can't write files to any of the subdirectories.
I have a Samba share already from my Ubuntu 8 server to my XP machine that is working perfect, but I was wanting to create an additional Samba Share so I went into the smb.conf file and basically copy and pasted from the original already working Samba share, just changed the path.
Then did the "sudo chmod 0777 /var/" for file permissions
This worked perfectly as far as displaying all of the directory and being able to access the subdirectories. Looking at the properties of the folders however I can see that they're read only. I can even create a new folder in the main directory, but can't write to it..
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
