Best Practices On Permissions On Linux Machines?

Recommended Posts

Sync 1.4 worked fine without having to muck about with permissions, but 2.0 gives

Don't have permissions to write to selected folder.

error when adding folders. I presume this is due to different way to handle permissions between the versions.


I'm quite unfamiliar with Linux permissions, but I guess I could set Sync to run as root, but that would be a rather big security risk. Another option would be to add Sync to a group which has access to said folders.


Any suggestions on best practices?

I have set up a very limited user for BTSync and a group. Only these have access too my files. Seems to be the best way for my limited Linux experience.
