im fairly a newbie when it comes to unix-like folder permissions, etc. and i am wondering if people can shed light on some of these:
- if a folder/directory has the permissions “drwx------,” - it would mean that only the owner has access to the directory, right? not even those in the same group as the owner can get into the directory, right?
- now, what if a file under this specific directory has a permission of “-rw-r–r--” - what would this mean? i would understand that the permission is that those from the group, as well as ‘others’ can read the file. however, if they dont have access to folder, can they actually READ it then?
- in regards to this, what would be the recommended folder and file permissions for offsite backup of my local pc?
thanks in advanced…
