"Permissision issue, pls. explain"

Post #302798429 by sumit30 on Wednesday 24th of April 2013 12:01:07 PM

@samnyc: look for group permission. Give a group write permission and you will be able to edit or create file in directory.
Make sure you login as a root or sam user and run before running command. Also path of directory is important.
Code shows command after login by root.

Code:
#pwd                  (Shows in what directory you are) 
#chmod 775 sam   (This will change group permission from nothing to write)
# ls -l sam

Good luck !
