    I'd recommend acquiring an intro book to Linux or taking some online tutorials. However I will answer some basic things for you.

    rwx are permissions. r=read access, w=write access and x=executable permissions (you can execute scripts or programs in this directory, or this file can be executed)

    There are 3 sets of these. First is the owner of the file/folder, second is the group of the user that owns the file/folder and the last is for everyone else on the server (essentially).

    nobody is user nobody. nobody, like root, is a special type of user - might want to look that up :)
