[Solved] /bin/sh Permission denied error Command failed with exit code 126

JULY 20, 2023

If you're trying to run a Bash script and get a Permission Denied error, it's probably because you don't have the rights to execute it.

Let's check that's true.

# Get the current file permissions.
stat -f %A
# 644

With 644, the user owner can read and write but not execute.1

Set the permissions to 755 to fix the issue.

chmod 755
