Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4355) Better debian packaging permissions
Date Mon, 18 Jun 2012 21:48:42 GMT


Nick Bailey commented on CASSANDRA-4355:

I'm also wondering if there are any generally accepted practices regarding giving the cassandra
group itself write permissions to these directories/files.

>From the perspective of someone writing a monitoring application, I would like to be able
to have our packaging create its own user and add that user to the cassandra group, and at
that point have read/write access to configuration files/snapshots/other things.

> The debian package creates a cassandra user for the process to run as. It chowns /var/lib/cassandra
and /var/log/cassandra, but it doesn't grant group level access to these files. It should
do a 'chown cassandra:cassandra ...' so that users in the cassandra group can also access
those files. Also we should chown /etc/cassandra and any other files/directories created.
