dirname( needs to be owned by root too
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Looks like open-ssh requires the directory is in to be owned by root as well as the file itself, and we don't explicitly say so in the instructions.

(At least on OpenSSH_6.6.1p1, OpenSSL 1.0.1e-fips 11 Feb 2013)

(This is the 3rd time this came up in IRC). Looks like people are trying to keep close to the phabricator code.

Thanks for this, just got caught by it myself.

This also reproduced locally for me (OS X Yosemite, openssh-6.7p1), and chmod on the parent directory alone was reliably sufficient to prevent SSH from working. The instructions already suggest a root-owned location, but D15794 notes this requirement explicitly.
