I have permission issues with my web server. So I have written part of my script to read and write the current paths in the web servers with its username and group name into a txt file. I want my script to replace the new permissions on my web server with the permissions written on my txt file. So The last part of my script is the tricky part. How to read the txt file and go to all the paths and rewrite the permissions as per what is on the txt file.
