I have done
chmod -R 644 .
inside the directory dir
My user's permissions are drw-r--r-- and i'm the owner of the directory
When trying chmod 755 dir, error is popped
chmod: changing permissions of dir Operation not permitted
The same error is popped when doing ls even as root
How can i change permissions back to 755?
from the level above dir .
chmod -R a+x *dir*
to give all users (a) execute permission to all subdirectories and files (+x) or.
chmod -R a+X *dir*
to give all users execute permission to all subdirectories only (+X)
