For a project I’m working on, I need the www-data user to be able to read /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/pki/index.txt
The permissions see fine for this:
-rw-r-----+ 1 root www-data 1050 Dec 7 20:43 index.txt
That wasn’t working so I added ACL.
getfacl index.txt # file: index.txt # owner: root # group: www-data user::rw- user:www-data:r-- group::r-- mask::r-- other::---
No matter what, it doesn’t work. There must be something I’m doing wrong here?
sudo -u www-data ls index.txt ls: cannot access 'index.txt': Permission denied
You also need to check the permissions of the containing directory and all parent directories, which must at least allow the
x search permission for that user in order to access files or directories within that directory (and
r permission if reading the directory listing is desired).
