755 is to set read, write, execute for user, and read write for group and other users

hi Acestrife,
for further questions i recommand using the help- system. for exemple nearly every command gives you a short description of possible options (<programname> --help) and a detailed manual (man <programname>).
just to let you know

greetings, grim
