How to make a script executable in linux

During our day to day development, we make some scripts to ease our development.

For example, a deploy-to-server.sh script. I have created one that consists of all the commands I execute in a shell in order to deploy to a server. ^_^

When we make such script file, we also have to make it a runnable or executable to be precise.

We can do that by using the following command:

shell
$ chmod +x ./deploy-to-server.sh

You can also mark a file not executable by using -x.

It is simple to remember as we are adding or removing the xcuteable state. \O/
