I'd like to create a new partition and move the contents of the /var directory to it for security reasons: to have /var directory, /var/www directory and other subdirectories mounted with nosuid, noexec, and nodev permissions. How do I do it for /var or any other root directory on Linux or, more specifically, Ubuntu 12?
I created a directory in my home directory using the sudo mkdir command. Then I used the rsync command to do a backup of my pendrive into my newly created directory. The funny thing is, I cannot delete files in the newly created directory, or the directory itself (even when using sudo). I am using Lubnutu 14.04, where the root login is disabled.
