Okay, figured it out. the partition was not mounted with the EXEC option. Adding that to fstab lets me run the scripts.
Hello, I have a problem with my fstab, I suspect.
I have a data partition mounted in fstab but it seems I cannot write downloads to it.
I hope I dint messed up things big time, but I am getting the 'permission denied' message when trying to view or modify a directory/file of a different user from root account.
