Subject RE : Folder Permissions taken over by Tomcat 4
Date Fri, 22 Aug 2003 13:16:29 GMT
Yes I do confirm it again (at least on Linux Red Hat 7.2, as long as the OS
has anything to do with it).
Ok I repeat :

- have a web application configured on Tomcat 4.0.3, in a folder like
- share an application's sub-folder (f.ex. webapps/myApps/documents), and
try to set permissions (read & write) and ownership for specific user
accounts which will access this sub-folder through SMB.
- restart Tomcat 4 : all these permissions in the webapps/myApps/documents
folder are gone. And furthermore, the folder's Ownership (maybe the problem
lies here actually...) is set to user : tomcat4, and group : tomcat4

I can send screenshots if you don't believe this...
Nobody heard of this before !?

You're saying Tomcat runs around and changes the directory permissions? 
  I find that really hard to believe...I'm running Tomcat 3.1, 4.1.12, 
4.1.18, and 4.1.27 in various places and have never seen this behavior.
