Section Number and Name: 8.6.2. Creating Custom Unit Files

Describe the issue: The 1st step, starting with "Prepare the executable file with the custom service." incorrectly states at the end to "Make sure the source script is executable (by executing the chmod a-x) and is not interactive.", as that would actually clear the executable bits from the script.

Suggestions for improvement: The correct 'chmod' command parameter to make the script executable should be 'a+x', the full command would then be 'chmod a+x'.
