I installed MajorCool, a MajorDomo web interface under the UID bin…
apparently that’s clasing with the MajorDomo UID mail… the Majorcool
interface doesn’t have read/write perms for MajorDomo. The only way I can
think of giving rw perms to MajorCool is to make MajorDomo chmod 755, but
that would open it up to everybody.

Is there a way to give perms to only Majorcool, or to change Majorcool’s
UID and GID, without having to uninstall and reinstall? I’m not sure
exactly how to uninstall.

Never use the userid bin.

That user owns your system utitlities and using it would be a huge
security hole in the system.

Unix works by unique UIDs.

Post the results of:

grep bin /etc/passwd grep mail /etc/passwd ls -lad /path/to/majordomo

Uninstall and reinstall are windows terms that are not applicable to Unix.

You can simply make the MajorCool member of group mail or something
similar to that, I need to see the results of these commands.

Sorry! It was the default when I ran the Configure for MajorCool.

I ran it again and retried about a dozen different combinations for UID
and GID and it kept telling me that I couldn’t write to the Lists dir…
the only way I could write to the majordomo/lists dir was to chmod it 764
or something…! I think that’s unsecure myself. Lists is owned by mail
and daemon…? weird. The rest is owned either by admin and mail or mail
and admin.

But anyway I got it to work, now I just have to figure out why it’s not
seeing any of our mailing lists.

I can login to the system and have a look, if you want.

That kind of stuff would have to be discussed by e-mail. No charge to you,
of course.
