Why does editing a shared file change the owner to "nobody"?
1. I created html files on my web server (desktop).
2. Rather than spend all my time confined to the desktop, I opted to share the necessary files/folders so that I can work from the laptop throughout the house.
3. After editing each file from the shared www folder, the files & folders appear with locks (looking at them from the desktop). The owner says "nobody."
Now, I can ONLY edit those locked files from the laptop. I know that I can change the owner with the chown command, but I'd have to do it after every edit (which can be several times a day).
