Thread: Need help with setting installer on root:wheel

  1. #1
    Default Need help with setting installer on root:wheel
    I'm a little stuck here and need some help, story is i'm one of those unlucky one with problem updating installer to 3.1, so i manually ssh it into my touch, running on 1.1.4, now it works but i get this msg saying installer should be set to root:wheel..

    Does anyone know how i set this? i've looked around but i just can't find any info on it, i found something bout UID = root and GID = wheel? not sure bout it but I'm using winscp and i tried ticking the two boxes next to them under propertise for the installer.app folder, the octal changes to 6755 then when i go ok however, it doesn't change, the boxes gets unticked.

    so am i doing something wrong? or am i suppose to do something else first?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    To change the owner and group properties for directories/apps/files you'll need to open up the directory in PuTTY and execute a chmod command.

    I forget the specific commands though so I guess I'm not much help. You'll use "chmod root /Applications/Installer" to set the owner but I forgot the group.

    Close, but the correct command is chown, change ownership.
    You should run something like this

    Code:
    chown -R root /Applications/Installer
    if you feel you want to change the group too, then do this


    Code:
    chown -R root:wheel /Applications/Installer
    It's kind of silly to put it into the wheel group, but if you want go ahead.
    I would suggest

    Code:
    chown -R root:admin /Applications/Installer
    be the command you run.
