Hi all, I'm setting up a Samba server in my basement for backups and to distribute media in my home. I'm the only user, so like the other computers in my home there are 2 accounts...mine and root.
The server has 4 drives. 1 OS, 2 ext3, 1 ntfs. (ntfs is a long story ;-) ) All already have media or backups on them.
What's the best practice to facilitate reading and writing. I'm only slightly worried about security.
I have the drives mounted in /mnt. Who should own the mount point folders, me or root?
What about the folders on the drives? Me or root?
Any reason I shouldn't use 777 for permissions?
Anything else I haven't overthought? ;-)
Thanks as always
