enable acl in VPS

Manolo asked:

How can I enable acl in my VPS? I have the next in /etc/fstab:

proc  /proc       proc    defaults    0    0
none  /dev/pts    devpts  rw          0    0

And executing df I get:

Filesystem     1K-blocks    Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/simfs      52428800 1971916  50456884   4% /
none              104860      64    104796   1% /run
none                5120       0      5120   0% /run/lock
none              524288       0    524288   0% /run/shm

When I try to do:

setfacl -R -m u:www-data:rwx -m u:manolo:rwx app/cache

I get “operation not supported” for each file.

My answer:


You are using OpenVZ. In this case you need to open a ticket with the service provider; the community cannot help.
