Join Kevin Skoglund for an in-depth discussion in this video File permissions, part of Ruby: Files, Formats, Templates.
- [Instructor] In this movie, we'll take a brief look…at the topic of file permissions.…All modern operating systems allow…for having multiple users.…You may only ever log into your computer as a single user,…but there is multi-user functionality that's still present.…Because of that, all files have ownership information…that says what user owns a file,…and permissions that determine whether the owner,…and other users are allowed to read the file, edit the file,…and in the case of programs, execute the file.…It's likely that most of the files on your computer…are owned by you and are accessible by you.…
So most of the time you're not going to need…to worry about permissions.…But every now and then,…a file permissions issue raises its head,…and it's something that you're going to have to troubleshoot.…Unfortunately, troubleshooting can be a little bit tricky…because there're different permission systems…for Unix and Windows.…There's not a one size fits all approach for handling this.…Still I want to give you some basic guidance…
