When a user creates a file, that file has the default properties and permissions. The default owner is, as it is easy to understand, the one who created the file.

Permissions for folders and files in Linux


To begin with, it should be noted that in a UNIX system (also applicable to Linux systems), anything that is not a file then it is a process.
