I would like to know how can I set up folder permissions when using chmod for:
Owner Permissions: All Permissions
Group Permissions: List folder contents, open files, append to existing files, and run scripts. Cannot delete files or create new ones.
Other Permissions: List folder contents only
I'm entering the command:
# chmod 755 folder
Is 755 the right permission??
Thanks in advance
File permission (octal codes)
For directories the "execute" permission is really "browse access" into the directory (without this you will need to know the file name inside the directory).
0 - no permissions
1 - execute (not much good without read)
2 - write
3 - write and execute
4 - read
5 - read and execute
6 - read and write
7 - read, write and execute
First octal digit is for owner the second is for the group and the third is for others.
Maybe you should use the newer options for chmod:
