How to manage permissions with the Linux CLI

Episode description

A foundational lesson in using a Linux Command Line Interface (CLI) is understanding permissions. Enabling a user or a group to read, open or execute a file is a powerful tool and detrimental if you’re not aware of the permissions granted. In this ACG Fundamentals lesson, Gwyn demonstrates how to use chmod to change the access to a file or folder so that you can assign users with the correct permissions.
