I need to set the permissions of a dir so that a usergroup in my ubuntu-server has read/write permissions. I understand that I’m supposed to use chmod (right?), but how do I set the permissions to only apply to a single usergroup?
chgrp $GROUPNAME $DIRNAME chown g=$PERMS
Where $DIRNAME is the directory you want to change, $GROUPNAME is the name of the group you want the directory to be owned by, and $PERMS is the combination of
rwx that you want to change permissions to.

- Chmod: defintion of everyone (777)
- Only allow a user to CHMOD and CHOWN in their home directory or a specified directory
- Copy a file’s owner permissions to group permissions
