  1. I just came across this after setting up a Ubuntu 18.04 VM for the sole purpose of being a FTP server (proftpd). I mounted my FTP root from the unraid array into the VM via fstab. I believe I have it working like I want it (I have 3 separate FTP users that each have a dedicated FTP root folder). The main thing is running into permissions and having the SMB side being able to interact with the FTP files that are being uploaded. It's working, but still need to investigate if I have the permissions in most efficient way. Anyway, I just wanted to know if this is pretty much the same th
  2. I think we got somewhere...everything is working better, but may something is still off? I applied the above chown commands to the entire ftp root directory (/mnt/user/FTP_ROOT) and I have each FTP user (3 total with dedicated root folders for each) writing data. Consolidation program is consolidating properly. File permissions are like this now: -rw-rw-rw- 1 FTPUSER2 users 40040 Jan 28 09:28 testfile Some files are orange highlighted now and a lot of the file names have a * after them. Not quite sure what that means yet. Again...working better, just not s
  3. Unraid is showing those permissions. I copied it from Unraid SSH session. Had to get some sleep last night. Working on updating umask in FTP server.
  4. So..I think I am even more confused now. Sorry for my ignorance. Let me say what is going on now. This is what I did: chown -R nobody:users FTPa chmod g+s FTPa I was getting permission denied errors when trying to upload a file. I added User1 to Unraid with read/write to FTP_ROOT (parent folder to FTPa) and was able to get files to upload to FTPa. The permissions attached to the uploaded file are: -rw-r--r-- 1 FTPusername users 92682031 Jan 27 17:33 20200127-203213-1580175133-247300043.tgz The Parent folder permissions are: drwxrws--- 1 nobody use
  5. The more I think about this, I want to do this via SSH on unraid and make sure the file permissions are nobody and user. Then by running the chmod g+s on the folder, any file created should inherit the permissions of that folder, not the user who created the file(s). Is that correct? EDIT: lol Now I am thinking I make sure file permissions are correct Unraid side, then run the chmod on the VM side since that is who will be creating the file.
  6. Thanks for the reply. I am going to look at that command tonight. When you say run that on one directory, would I do this Unraid side or VM side?
  7. Hello everyone. I just setup an Unraid server and loving it so far. However, running into a few issues and wanted to see if someone could assist me or at least help me think about doing this a different way to achieve what I need. The main point of the Unraid server was for storage. I had a 10TB drive as a second disk that got full so it made sense to move to Unraid for its obvious benefits. The storage is for backups for various applications (backups and config files basically). The way I previously got these files was via a FTP server that has the FTP r
  8. This is what I finally decided to go with: Changed from Intel and AMD and decided to use onboard graphics. One less thing I need in the case. Also changed the case from the original build. I looked at "shuckable" drives, but I decided to go with the NAS drives. I know they are more expensive, but they are designed for this application and this is not for a home build. It will be used in a small business environment. Mainly as plan storage for backups and image files. I also purchased a "slim" 8
  9. Thank ya'll for your replies. I will take a look at AMD and see. I usually prefer AMD but I thought I saw somewhere on this forum where Intel was recommended. I didn't think about the additional cost of the cooler either. Thanks again!
  10. Hello everyone, I am at the point of needing to make a NAS storage server and am looking into using unraid. I put the following hardware together: Would this be compatible with unraid? I looked at the FAQ and besides ECC memory, I think this would be ok for a SOHO environment? This is basically for storage only with the possibility of small headless VMs running low intensity applications. The motherboard supports 8 drives but I only need 20TB right now and third drive would be
