    If I have to set permissions on a file threw root explorer I just click and hold then scroll down to permissions.

    What I don't get is when someone says set it to 644 744 ect. How does that translate to the permissions in root explorer.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    even simpler

    4 = r(ead)
    2 = w(rite)
    1 = (e)x(ecutable)

    and you have

    3 Sets of permissions
    rwxrwxrwx
    XXX------ Owner
    ---XXX--- Group
    ------XXX Other

    644 is
    rw-r--r--

    |6|44 = |4+2|44 = |r+w|44
    6|4|4 = 6|4|4 = 6|r|4
    64|4| = 64|4| = 64|r|

    so if something is 644

    it is able to be read+written to by owner
    it is able to be read by group
    it is able to be read by others

    other examples:

    777 = rwxrw
    xrwx (full r(ead)/w(rite)/e(x)ecute on file by any user!)(aka God mode :))

    |7|77 = |4+2+1|77
    7|7|7 = 7|
    4+2+1|7
    77|7| = 77|
    4+2+1|

    666 = rw-rw-rw (r(ead)/w(rite) access by any user!)

    |6|66 = |4+2|66
    6|6|6 = 6|
    4+2|6
    66|6| = 66|
    4+2|
