UNIX ENVIRONMENT - owner 500 after installation testlink

Postby pg75 » Mon Oct 15, 2012 12:49 pm

Hello,

I have some question about owner 500 after having installed testlink 1.9.3 by following the doc installation of testlink.
Under directory ./../httpd-2.2.22/htdocs/testlink-1.9.3, the owner of this directory is id 500.
No user is with this id (I don't find any user with id 500 under /etc/passwd ou /etc/group).
The apache user is deamon.Someone can help to tell me who is renseigned this id 500??
Thanks lot for your help

you can see exemple there.

When using tar command to create a .tar file, it saves the original userid and groupid as numbers not names.

And then when somebody tries to untar the tar files (tar -x....) as root it sets the saved userid and groupid, and as you don't have any user or group with id 500 you just see numbers.

So just change owner of the files/directory that you want.
