Permissions and Access Control - 6.5.22m

Unread postby AX » Mon Sep 26, 2005 7:55 am

Hello all,

I have a root account on my Octane2 and I also have a user account which I do everyday e-mail etc. Is it possible to have close to root privileages without hanging yourself out there or running as root. I cannot modify files, like deleting the Apache access log or download off of the internet without logging in as root. It will allow me to choose location but when I hit download nothing happens. My user group is "sys", should it be other? I am running Firefox 1.61a and Irix 6.5.22M. The biggest problem is having to log in as root to do web server related functions.
