How can I change file and folder permissions in Red Hat Linux

Below is a link from redhat.com that explains how to change permissions in files and folders using the shell prompt.  The guide is actually for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 but the methods of setting and changing file permissions and ownership are the same in all versions of Red Hat and all other Linux variants.
 
 
Changing permissions is easy if you have access to an administrator account or if your current account has administrative privileges.  You will also be using the "chmod" command.  The options may take some getting used to but thankfully the link above will guide you through it.

Mr. Paul,

Mainly the commands used to change permissions and ownership are “chmod” and “chown” respectively, but there are lots of synopsis and switches used with them accordingly. When you give the command

#ls –l

in Linux console the very first column shows the permissions of that file or folder which is like this. 

drwxrwxrwx or _rw_r__r__. The first “d” means directory and r,w,x means read, write and execute permission to user, group and others. The permissions can be assigned alphabetically as well as numerically. It is very detailed thing to discuss here. Shortly you can see the image attached for guidance.
