Subject Re: running tomcat with root user
Date Mon, 02 Feb 2009 05:58:11 GMT
Are you sure about the group write permissions?  I glanced at the jailkit web page and it looks
like it's sugar coating and chrome around a chroot.  So I would think that using unix groups
would work.  And on the flip side, if unix groups don't work, it seems to me that ACLs wouldn't
either. wrote:

it appears that I have to run tomcat as root user, because the spring app that tomcat starts
needs to write files to other users' home directories.  The tomcat user doesn't have access
to these directories.

users are jailed using jailkit.  So it doesn't appear that jailkit lets me add group write
privileges to the home directories and maintain a working jail.
