Reset file permissions of RPM packages

UPDATE: YOU NEED TO RUN THE FOLLOWING COMMANDS IN REVERS ORDER!

So, --setperms then --setugids. This is because setperms will overwrite sticky bits if run after setugids.

A disastrous mistake anyone can make on their Linux server is to chown or chmod their entire filesystem.

You can reset the permissions of packages installed with rpm.

To reset file permissions:

[root@www ~]# rpm --setperms {packagename}

To reset ownership permissions:

[root@www ~]# rpm --setugids {packagename}
