CHMOD (change mode) is a command-line program that lets you change file attributes such as file permissions.
There are three types of permissions that can be configured for files and scripts.
|Read permissions:||permission to read files||(r as in read)|
|Write permissions:||permission to make changes to files||(w as in write)|
|Execute permissions:||Permission to execute files (programs)||(x as in execute)|
Another way to use CHMOD is with numbers for assigning access permissions. Numbers in the octal system (0-7) are used for this.
Hoststar uses the following default permissions:
|Directory||Permission codes||Octal system|
|Folder||rwx r-x r-x||755|
|File||rw- r-- r--||644|
