Unix Tip #4585- September 30, 2013


SEARCH : Home : Help : Today's Tip

HIDE THOSE FILES



If you want to have some hidden directories on your server (warez etc.)
then make a directory with permission 111.


% chmod 111 foo/

All the contents will become hidden:

% cd foo
% ls -al
Cannot access directory .: Permission denied

The directory will have to opened back up (755) in order to see or access
the files or the directory. To remove the directory and its contents, it
will also need to have the permissions opened.
