I am new to linux and SAMBA. I am using Linux as a file server and back up machine to interface with my windows xp computer. I am able to access the directory I want, and even write to it. Unfortunately I am not able to write to any of the subdirectories though. I can;t figure out why.

Here is my smb.conf code. PLEASE HELP A NEWBIE OUT!!!!!

I can access and write to aeproberts directory, but I am unable to write to any subdirectories that I create. It is killing me.

[aeproberts]
comment = Backup Files
path = /home/aeproberts/
browseable = yes
write list = aeproberts
writeable = yes
valid users = aeproberts
public = yes
preserve permissions = yes
directory mode = 0770
create mode = 0660


Thanks to anyone who can help.

Probably not a problem with your smb.conf, just a problem with permissions. (You'll probably only need to set these once)

chmod -R 770 /home/aeproberts
chown -R aeproberts /home/aeproberts

That should do it. You might be making these subdirectories with root, or another user.
