Hi Guys,

I have created one user in my system. But this user don't have the permission to read /root folder. Can anyone tell me how can I give read power to any user of /root folder?

Hi@akhtar,

You can use chmod command in your Linux system. By default, no user has the permissions to read /root folder. But you can change the permission by using the below-given command.

$ chmod o+r /root/

Hope this helps you!
