Linux permissions definitions

There are two types of general permissions and three types of advanced permissions you can specify for Linux shared hosting directories. Advanced permissions can be set for both directory users (website visitors) and owners (website administrators).

Advanced Permissions

You can use this information when changing your file permissions (Web & Classic / cPanel).
