View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't use ACL on /var

July 24th, 2011, 07:53 PM
I'm trying to setup ACL (access control lists) on my /var/www folder so myself and my roommate can work on a site together. I've installed ACL and added the acl option to fstab for the root (/), but whenever I try to setfacl, I still get
setfacl: /var/www: Operation not permitted

I can however share folders in my /home directory so I guess it has to be that /var isn't getting the ACL option.

Here is my fstab file:

proc /proc proc nodev,noexec,nosuid,acl 0 0
/dev/mapper/franklin-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro,acl 0 1
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 defaults,acl 0 2
/dev/mapper/franklin-swap_1 none

What am I missing?

Did you run that command as root ?

Post the entire command you ran.
