File permission to specific user !


Hi all,

i have created a file (by root user) called test.txt. Then i created a user bob. Now i want only bob to read/write/execute this file and no other user shall have any permission on it.

How can i do it ?

First you need to change the owner of the file to bob and then grant read/write/execute permissions only to the user (bob).
Have a look at the following article:

Have a look at chown and chmod.
