Securing a directory
Here is a tip that uses the sticky bit feature of Linux to secure a directory. A sticky but ensures that no user other than the owner and the super can delete files in the directory. When a sticky bit is applied to a directory, other users can not delete anything, even if they have full permission on the directory.
To apply the sticky bit feature to a directory, run the following commands…

$ chmod o+t mydir

This feature is extremly useful for group projects where multiple users are using the content from one single directory.
