Re: Problem with cron.allow
cron.deny does not exist.
i have found the problem, but i m not sure to understand all the subtleties.
I have set the file permissions on 600 for /etc/cron.allow.
So when a user call the command crontab, the file /etc/cron.allow could not
By changing to 644, the file /etc/cron.allow works.
But i don't understand how the daemon cron works :
I have 3 questions (sorry )
1) It seems to run under root
ps aux | grep cron
root 13262 0.0 0.0 1764 820 ? Ss Jun04 0:00
So why can't it read the /etc/cron.allow with file permission 600.
2) Is there a way to modify the default ebian behavior with cron.
I can understand that if /etc/cron.allow or /etc/cron.deny doesn't exist,
evevybody can use the crontab!
I prefer the policy : if they don't exist, only root can use crontab.
Can we change that ?
3/ What is the group crontab ?
thnaks a lot
