I think the easiest way to describe is using these pictures:

click for image

I also tested using

chmod -R a+rw minecraft2

What is the problem here?


You don't have the group execute permission set on minecraft2 directory. Execute permission is required in order to be able to cd into directory.

You can fix this by executing the following command:

chmod g+x minecraft2

  • Execute permission has a different meaning for directories. This might seem confusing if you are not too familiar with Unix permissions. – grekasius Jun 28 '14 at 19:59
  • Good to know, I think I should read a bit about it. – bagbag Jun 28 '14 at 20:44
