  • Is there a way to fix home folder permissions remotely?

    I have a remote ubuntu computer that I connect to via SSH. The remote computer has only one user. I accidentally changed the user's home folder permissions (to 555, I believe) and because of that I can no longer ssh in. Is there a way to fix the permissions remotely?
