[RESOLVED] PuTTy Help
When I chmod file permissions, PuTTy doesn't give me any sort of confirmation message or error message. Does that mean it worked?
I gave up on PuTTy and use WinSCP instead... give it a shot.
I'm not a big Shell user, to be honest. I just downloaded PuTTy because I was required to use SSH for something, not because I wanted to. Since I'm already getting accustomed to PuTTy, I'd really rather not go ahead and download another program. Could you please just answer my question?
After you chmod something use ls -la to see the attributes of the directory.
I'm not working on a directory, though, I'm working on a specific file. I need to know that the file's permissions were changed accordingly. Of course, if PuTTy doesn't give you a confirmation message nor an error message when the settings have been altered, that's fine too. This is really the first time I've done anything with Shell, so I don't know what to expect.
Thats not really a putty specific question. Putty is simply the end client software to communicate over ssh protocol, as such it only outputs what the remote computer tells it too.
However, no, most servers don't give you confirmation (technically most command line options don't).
You simply need to type:
chmod your_permissions filename
then type ls with the flag -la to show its file info/permissions:
That's all I needed. Thanks for your help
