PREFACE: Posting this in 2 forums in total — wasn't sure if should be here or there, so, apologies! Anyway - I am a very novice UNIX/LINUX guy, so be easy on me. I definitely know all the commands and such, but don't use it as my main operating system anymore!
When trying to delete certain files within PUBLIC share, even as SUPER USER/root connecting via ssh, I get "Read-only file system" error when trying to delete files.
I've already done:
chown -R www-data:www-data PUBLIC
chmod -R 770 PUBLIC
If check the mounts, I notice /dev/md4 on /shares/internal/ is "ro" - that is the culprit. But can't figure out how to change it.
Dump of mount -o -p =
[root@MyBookWorld etc]# mount-o -p
/dev/root on / type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
sys on /sys type sysfs (rw)
/dev/md3 on /var type ext3 (rw,noatime,data=ordered)
/dev/md4 on /shares/internal type ext3 (ro,noatime,data=ordered)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw)
The /etc/fstab file looks like has "defaults" set for md4 mount. I tried experimenting with changing "defaults" to "rw" , but mounted as "ro" anyway. (dump below). What can I do to mount /dev/md4 to "rw"?!?!
[root@MyBookWorld etc]# more fstab
