The owner of a file can change the security information for their file, as follows:
Note: Whenever input is requested, the user may enter a question mark (?) to receive HELP.
The file owner may change the following security options for their file:
Caution! Be careful changing owner security. Once the owner has been changed, then the original owner may no longer use the utility, ctfile, to access the file and change security information.
Note: The Administrator can always use the Administration Utility to change, or view, the file security information for any file controlled by FairCom DB.
FairCom DB defaults to a permission mode of 0660 (read/write access for owner and group; no access for world) for the files it creates.
When using FairCom DB the permission mode assigned to files can be set with the server configuration keyword FILE_CREATE_MODE to specify the desired file permission mode.
;Set read and write permission for owner
;and no permission for group and world.
Note: On Unix systems, the system’s umask setting also affects the permission mode assigned to a file when it is created. If the umask setting is non-zero, the specified permissions are removed from the file’s permission mode.
