Fix zsh: permission denied: script.sh


% ./script.sh               
zsh: permission denied: ./script.sh

If you are trying to execute a script on the Terminal using the Zsh shell and you get permission denied then make sure that the script has the execute permissions. You can do that by using the ls command.

% ls -ltrh
total 2832
-rw-r--r--  1 code2care  staff     5B Jul 19 11:50 script.sh
Adding execute permission to the file:

Use the chmod command to add execute (x) permissions to the script.

chmod +x script.sh

Now if I try to run the script again it works!

% ./script.sh
Hello, World!
zsh: permission denied
zsh: permission denied
