I was wondering what the command to give a permission through console is. A permission, not a group, through the console?

If you do happen to be using Group Manager or PEX use the following commands:

Group Manager:

manuaddp <player> <permission string>


pex user <user> add <permission> [world]

<> Being mandatory [] Being optional

It depends on the permissions plugin that you're using. If you're using PermissionsBukkit, you would do:

/perms player setperm <player> <[world:]node> [true|false]

(/perms is shorthand for /permissions)

Check out the Commands page of the PermissionsBukkit docs for more info.
