File permissions in RH8
How do I enable access (read, write, execute) to all users for a selected folder and all files and subfolders of that folder?
I know you can right-click files and change things but doing them all individually will be such a pain. Is there a console command that I can use to do this?
Also, RH8 refuses to let me give permission to other users to access the mounted windows drives that I have.
I'd be greatful for any help that you can give. :)
chmod 777 <file/folder> should do
On console you can...
On console you can do this:
<root password here>
chmod -R a+r myFolder
This will recursively change all files and folders to allow all users to read the files. (The -R option works also with chown command.)
Hope this will help you.
Great stuff. That was just the command I was looking for. Thanks.
