I have a directory that is acessable by all the users and in there are some files of a program that i would like to hide or lock for some users and made visible/usable for some other users. Basicly i would like to remove the read option for some users.

Is this possible and how ? Thank your


Make it only executable, by changing chmod 100 if u want to hide file use .(dot) begining of file name

Ex : .foo.txt this file will be hide

  • thank you but only a group of people can execute it the other group cant – Shawn Dec 18 '15 at 13:08
