I'm having home folder PATH issues with my Java install.  I installed the jdk to \jdk.  I tried to run a script and got an error pertaining to JAVA home folder not being found.  I defined the JAVA home folder via  nano ~/.bash_profile.  Whenever I run the config.sh file I get the error below.  I also get the same error when running -java version .  Any ideas?

./config.sh: line 36: /jdk/bin/java: Permission denied

hi,

First check the permission of /jdk/bin/java via #ll
and after set the user as root and group try it again.
If you got any error message then post it...

Please specify in detail... I'm new to Linux.  JDK is installed into /jdk.  The java executable is installed into /jdk/bin.  What command do I run to check the permissions?

# ll /jdk/bin/java                  (Note: here ll stand for long listing for check permission)

Output like this
#-rwxrwxr-x  2 root   xerox  4096 2014-04-217 10:06 java

and for set permission (chmod) and owner(chown) of file
#chown -R root.xerox path     (-R stand for recursive permission) (here xerox is a group)

for permission
# chmod 775 filepath

For give only execute permission use
# chmod +x file path
and check permission

4-read
2-write
1-Execute
full permission =7

For more help you can use # man chmod

I'm able to run 'java -version' now.. But I still get the below error when running ./config.sh.  I also included the results of the command you asked me to run.

-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 7718 Dec 18 21:13 /jdk/bin/java

[root@PIPSAtlassian1 bin]# ./config.sh
./config.sh: line 36: /jdk/bin/java: Permission denied

This time permission on this file is 644.

Now set the permission.
#chmod 775 /jdk/bin/java
and again try to run ./config
