Move /data, /pub and /working to samba share


For backup the fosWiki data, i moved /data, /pub and /working to a samba share directory, and changed the pathes in the "configure" of foswiki.

Any dummy user has write access on this share, so i think fosWiki should be able to write too.

But any time i try to edit a site, i get the following warning:

RCS: failed to create file /mnt/smbshare/data/Main/ Permission denied at /var/lib/foswiki/lib/Foswiki/Store/ line 827.

Does anybody has an idea what i did wrong?

Thanks for help

In other Words: How must the rights in the samba share be set to gain write access for foswiki?

AFAIK, it just needs read/write permissions (and execute on the directories?), but I don't know anything about Samba. It looks like it is having problems creating the lease file. Perhaps you can look at Debugging third-party programs, which might show you more information from RCS on why its failing. Also there is SettingFileAccessRightsLinuxUnix, but it might not help you.
