Questions:

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 changin JARs, XMLs, LOGs and properitees files.

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

Thanks!

Answers:

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)
