I have been working on a fabric modded server for friends and everthing is goig great except I am unable to edit files (like move, add, and delete.). This is a major problem for me because I need to replace some files with a fabric server file in order to get it working. Is there ant workaround for this?
Server: HP Prolient dl360 G7
Os: Debian running without a user interface as the server is controlled through PuTTY and WinSCP so using the server to add/edit files by a user interface.
The error I am being given is that when I try to move a file through WinSCP it gives me the error that I do not have the correct permission and my access is denied. So if anyone knows how I can either promote my user to the root user or how I can login to my server as root through WinSCP please comment below.
Solution: I had to add my user to the “root” group instead of the “sudo” group
sudo adduser administrator root
#administrator is the user you want to add the the root group
#root is the root group that has access to all server info/files
this command will work to move any user to any group in debian as long as you change “administrator” to the user you want to move and “root” to the group you want to move the user too.
