I was wondering if there is a set of commands that you can run to reset file permissions to default. A bunch of directories/files got their permissions changed on my server due to me copying and pasting a shell script without looking closer into what it was actually doing.


There's no way doing this except for resetting the packages contents rights.

You could try :

rpm --setperms {packagename}

But it wont probably affect all LSB directories.
