if you want to directory"/path/to/backup/directory "is set to have write access to all users, You can use the following command:
sudo chmod 777 /path/to/backup/directory
chmod is a command used to change the permissions of files or directories. 777 indicates that all users have read, write, and execute permissions. Note that this will allow any user to write to the directory, which can be a security risk, depending on your situation.
If you only want users with a specific user or group of users to be able to write to this directory, you can use the appropriate permission Settings, such as:
sudo chown myuser:mygroup /path/to/backup/directory
sudo chmod 770 /path/to/backup/directory
This will give the user named "myuser" and users belonging to the "mygroup" group permission to access the directory, but no other users. The chmod 770 command indicates that the directory owner and group users have read, write, and execute permissions, while other users have no permissions.
This is just an example, and the permission Settings depend on your situation.
