• program for file permissions etc

    From david nnaemeka@110:300/1.1 to All on Wed Aug 22 10:34:21 2012
    Please, can anyone suggest a program (with downloading link) that I can
    use to check for file system permissions, unusual configurations and permissions seamlessly, along with other admin tasks?
    tnx

    Don't understand what you're looking for but what about ls -l?

    man ls

    man ls

    why not do -la to change permissions use chmod (man chmod)

    You might be better off with a script that hooks into ls. Not sure if
    there's a dedicated program to do what you're asking, but you could make
    a script that flags unusual or bad file permission settings, such as user:group configurations that seem out of place or anything that has 777
    on it that shouldn't.

    You do not say what linux version you have.
    For rpm machines
    rpm -Va>/tmp/verify
    will give a list of all files which have changed (contents, permissions,
    etc) since installation.
    tripwire will check files changes.
    Not sure what an "unusual configuration " means.
