The Terminal Commands redone...Symbolic Style!
Authored by: digitalee on Oct 29, '08 08:02:15AM
For those too weary or weathered to translate all this to symbolic permissions (which is most definitely the safer, more appropriate approach), here are the commands rewritten:
$ sudo chown -R sally:staff /Users/sally
$ sudo chmod -R u+rwX  /Users/sally
$ sudo chmod u+rwX,go+rX /Users/sally
$ sudo chmod -R u+rwX,go+rX /Users/sally/Public /Users/sally/Sites
$ sudo chmod -R u+rwX,go+wX /Users/sally/Public/Drop\ Box
$ sudo chmod +a "everyone deny delete" /Users/sally /Users/sally/Sites /Users/sally/Public /Users/sally/Desktop /Users/sally/Documents /Users/sally/Downloads /Users/sally/Pictures /Users/sally/Music /Users/sally/Movies /Users/sally/Library
$ sudo chmod -R +a "sally allow readattr,readextattr,readsecurity,list,search,read,execute,file_inherit,directory_inherit,delete,writeextattr,writeattr,write,append,delete_child,add_file,add_subdirectory" /Users/sally/Public/Drop\ Box
Share and Enjoy!
