    Accidentally do sudo chmod 0777 /var -R

    So now all directories in /var are 0777. How can I roll back? Ubuntu Server 12.04

    You're not the first, take a look at http://sysadminnotebook.blogspot.co....ssions-to.html which gives a few options.
    Mark your thread as [SOLVED], use Thread Tools on forum page.

    Since the upgrade of the forum there's still a problem with the option to mark the threads as solved in the Thread Tools combo. The workaround is to edit the thread Title and inserting [SOLVED] at the beginning of it.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.
