Understanding how to read this output is useful to all unix users, but especially people using group access permissions.


Field 1: a set of ten permission flags.
Field 2: link count (don't worry about this)
Field 3: owner of the file
Field 4: associated group for the file
Field 5: size in bytes
Field 6-8: date of last modification (format varies, but always 3 fields)
Field 9: name of file (possibly with path, depending on how ls was called)


The permission flags are read as follows (left to right)
position Meaning
1 directory flag, 'd' if a directory, '-' if a normal file, something else occasionally may appear here for special devices.
2,3,4 read, write, execute permission for User (Owner) of file
5,6,7 read, write, execute permission for Group
8,9,10 read, write, execute permission for Other
value Meaning
- in any position means that flag is not set
r file is readable by owner, group or other
w file is writeable. On a directory, write access means you can add or delete files
x file is executable (only for programs and shell scripts - not useful for data files). Execute permission on a directory means you can list the files in that directory
s in the place where 'x' would normally go is called the set-UID or set-groupID flag.

The default file permissions (umask):

Each user has a default set of permissions which apply to all files created by that user, unless the software explicitly sets something else. This is often called the 'umask', after the command used to change it. It is either inherited from the login process, or set in the .cshrc or .login file which configures an individual account, or it can be run manually.

Typically the default configuration is equivalent to typing 'umask 22' which produces permissions of:

-rw-r--r-- for regular files, or
drwxr-xr-x for directories.

In other words, user has full access, everyone else (group and other) has read access to files, lookup access to directories.

When working with group-access files and directories, it is common to use 'umask 2' which produces permissions of:

-rw-rw-r-- for regular files, or
drwxrwxr-x for directories.

For private work, use 'umask 77' which produces permissions:

-rw------- for regular files, or
drwx------ for directories.

The logic behind the number given to umask is not intuitive.


So in a Nutshell

0777 or drwxrwxrwx gives world, group, and user access to the directory where as 0666 or rw-rw-rw gives world, group, and user access to the files

now after initial configuration of your forum it is safe to most files to 664 or rw-rw--- and most directories to 775 or drwxrwxr-x


Code:

 config (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666) cron (directory to 0777 and files within to 0775) fbbavatars (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666) fbbuploads (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666)     pt_files (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666) images (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666)     avatars (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666)     forumimages (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666)     icons (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666)     smilies (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666)     statusflags (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666) language (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666)     english (directory to 0777 and files within to 0666)

Greetings!


Thank you for taking a moment to check out the Documentation Resource for the FusionBB messageboard software (aka FBB Docs)!


We hope that you will be able to find the answers to your questions here!


If you see any information that needs to be tweaked or updated, or have a request for a possible topic to be added--please take a moment to post it in the FBB Docs: Comments & Requests topic thread in this section. (There is also a link to the thread in the forum insert of each main section for your convenience.)


If you're a long-time FusionBB user, you'll recall our original Wiki-based Documentation Resource. We've switched over to using FusionBB because it showcases how versatile the FusionBB messageboard software really is!


Having the FBB Docs integrated with the messageboards also allows searches to bring up resources in both places--making those searches much more useful


Our goal is to make this resource as 'user-friendly' as possible. We think you'll agree that this integration with the Main FusionBB site only helps to further that goal.


In short, we want this information resource to be the best possible resource for YOU!



Thanks again for choosing FusionBB!



--Lori and the entire FusionBB team.





P.S. If you're looking for mods for your FusionBB-based messageboard, FusionBB Dev is the place to go! This site is the official home for hacking/modifications and addons for FusionBB.com. Unlike other forum developers, FusionBB Dev isn't a third-party site, it's operated by the FusionBB developers themselves. (Why? Because we're all big ol' hackers at heart. )

Before installing FusionBB for the first time, you should check to make sure that your host meets the needed requirements to run the software.

This can be easily done by downloading a .zip file written by FBB coding guru Dave Lozier. This file, plus the most up-to-date information related to it, can be found in the FusionBB Pre-Install Check thread here .

This is the current English language pack for FusionBB 2.0 to use for translations to other languages.

Thanks in advance to those of you who will take the time to translate into other languages for us and if you wouldn't mind sharing with others, it would be greatly appreciated!

I will do my best to keep the latest english language pack here. Other translations folks may upload will receive stickys so they can be found easily.

Translation Instructions

  • Download the attached English Language pack and unzip

  • Rename the 'english' directory to the name of the language (i.e. 'spanish' or 'french')

  • Translate the strings in the included files

  • Re-Zip the directory

  • Make a new topic here with appropriate title (i.e. "Spanish Language Pack") and attach zip.

This post is for LISTING ONLY not discussing.

To search and replace an avatar link location

UPDATE fbb_user_info
SET info_avatar = REPLACE(info_avatar, 'http://www.yourdomain.com/ubbthreads/', 'http://www.yourdomain.com/fusion/')
WHERE `info_fsa` LIKE '%http://www.yourdomain.com/ubbthreads/%'


To change the color for a group

UPDATE fbb_user_info a, fbb_user_groups b
SET a.info_name_color = '#000066'
WHERE a.user_id = b.user_id
AND b.group_id = '1'

To change the color for a group but only if no color is already set


UPDATE fbb_user_info a, fbb_user_groups b
SET a.info_name_color = '#000066'
WHERE a.user_id = b.user_id
AND b.group_id = '1'
AND a.info_name_color IS NULL


Query to see how many unique users has logged into the forums in the past 24 hours

select user_id, info_user_login, info_last_online
from fbb_user_info
where info_last_online >= (UNIX_TIMESTAMP(NOW()) - 86400)

Count to see how many users use a particular skin

SELECT info_userskin, COUNT( info_userskin ) AS total_used
FROM fbb_user_info
GROUP BY info_userskin
ORDER BY total_used DESC

Since the newer versions are sorted by user names instead of user numbers, it makes it nearly impossible to lookup a user by the number. Here's the query for that. by Dman

SELECT info_display_name
FROM fbb_user_info
WHERE fbb_user_info.user_id = (insert user number for the ???)

Is there a MYSQL query I can run in order to put all my users in the "Users" group ?


UPDATE fbb_user_groups
SET group_id = 'new group id'
WHERE group_id 'old group id'

is there a MYSQL Query I can run to set "Receive mass emails from board administration" to "yes"?

UPDATE fbb_user_info
SET info_receive_emails = 1

ow I can get the e-mail addresses of users who have not been on line for more than a month

SELECT info_real_email,info_user _login, info_last_online
FROM fbb_user_info
WHERE info_last_online <= ((UNIX_TIMESTAMP(NOW()) - 2592000)) AND info_receive_emails = 1

how can I turn everyones email settings who want admin mail to non-html

UPDATE fbb_user_info
SET info_html_email = 0

How Can I Change the default topic view from 30 days or newer to all dates.

update fbb_forums
set forum_topic_age = '0'

How can I perform a mass move of topics

UPDATE fbb_files SET forum_id = 'X' WHERE forum_id = 'Y'
UPDATE fbb_polls SET forum_id = 'X' WHERE forum_id = 'Y'
UPDATE fbb_posts SET forum_id = 'X' WHERE forum_id = 'Y'
UPDATE fbb_topics SET forum_id = 'X' WHERE forum_id = 'Y'
substitute new forum ID number for X and the old forum id number for Y.

If table fbb_page_cache crashes and needs to be wiped clean: thanx Gregori

TRUNCATE TABLE fbb_page_cache

To clear all titles

UPDATE fbb_user_info SET info_title_custom = ''

To clear out specific titles

UPDATE fbb_user_info SET info_title_custom = '' WHERE info_title_custom = '1234'

How to turn all signatures on

UPDATE fbb_user_info SET info_hide_sigs = 0

How to force birthdays to Show

How to add a group of users into another group as well

insert into fbb_user_groups (group_id, user_id) select group_id, user_id from fbb_user_info, fbb_groups where user_id > 1 and group_id = #

where # is the group_id of the group you want to place them..

It's inevitable - FusionBB is still in development, so you're bound to spot a few bugs.

Please post them as new topics in this forum. Be as descriptive as possible so we can track them down and get them squashed.


As they are fixed in future development versions, we'll marked them fixed in the subject line. This this forum works as a big "todo" list for us.
