    hi guys

    I had 10 users and 3 linux servers
    they are normal users

    I need to assign read access to these 1o users to /opt /var /usr and all files and folder withing them

    how can I accomplish that without going user by user?

    any idea?

    should this command work? well for me is not working

    chmod -R o+r /var/*
    is that command OK?

    I think
    chmod -R o+r /var
    should be enough.

    well I think I need it on /var /usr

    do you think is a good idea? provide read permissions to all folders and files with those 2?

    A safer way would be to create a group for these 10 users and then give read permissions to just that group.
