Nope, but thx anyway.

I changed the permission in the /root dir yesterday with chmod 700 .* 
I only wanted to change the hidden files that started with . (like .ssh)
This caused .. to have wrong permissions. It should have 755 so anything can
cd out of the directory. 

How something small like this, can cause so many problems. Lesson learned
