Differences between CHMOD 755 vs 750 permissions set


I have some files with 755 and I need to change them to 750, but I am not sure if this can affect some process.

I am changing JARs, XMLs, LOGs, and properties files.

Can someone explain to me the difference between these two permission sets?

The Best Answer is


0755 = User:rwx Group:r-x World:r-x

0750 = User:rwx Group:r-x World:--- (i.e. World: no access)

r = read
w = write
x = execute (traverse for directories)
