    If your system administrator changed permissions, you should ask him/her to change them back.

    You need root access to change permissions for /var.

    Hi,

    Once you have gained root superuser privileges, you can use chmod to change the access rights of every object in the /var directory.

    Use the -R option to make the change in one go.

    As root, run

    # chmod -R 755 /var

    You are done. This will revert the access rights of every object stored the /var hierarchy back to its standard security settings, where only root is allowed to change/remove them.


    Hope this helps.
