You may consider trying chmod 660 filename. 660 -----> UGW, user group world. For each read, write, and execute is given a number, 4,2,1 repectively. So, 660 would result in rw-rw----, a popluar format is 755, rwxr-xr-x. You would simply replace add the numbers together for each division and place them after chmod and before the file to give the permissions you would like.
