Newbie Access Priviledges Query
« on: October 21, 2011, 09:11:15 AM »
Hi all,

apologies if my question is a bit silly, but i don't have much experience with linux, just basic navigation skills...
OK, my question now..
I have a Linux box with a jboss app server installed...
A web application that lives on the jboss server (and uses a java security policy file) calls a third party application  that lives on the same box.
The external application is using various files in order to log and create temporary files.
My issue is that when it comes to the logs dir it works fine and logs events...
12 drwxrwxrwx  2     777 test 12288 Oct 20 13:47 logs


The problem is when it tries to create the temp files on various dirs that they don't have drwxrwxrwx access...
From what I understand this 777 user is been used to access/modify the logs dir...

I'm trying to find this user but i cannot locate him in the users list...
I don't understand where this is coming from or how to use this one to provide access to the rest of the temp dirs...


any help will be much appreciated, since I believe that if I use this user's id to the rest of the temp dirs might solve my access rights issues...


Many thanks in advance,

Mike
