- Executable: Permits the execution of scripts.
- Read: Permits anonymous viewing of directory content through a Web browser. If read permissions are not granted, FTP credentials must be provided to view directory content.
- Write: Permits anonymous modification of directory contents.
- Execute: Permits the execution of scripts.
