diff --git a/your_file b/your_file
old mode 100644
new mode 100755

For information, the unix file permission mode(644=rw_r__r__ which means read and write for user, only read for group and only read for others, the same for 755=rwxrw_rw_, x for executable).

To disable the comparaison of file mode, the command to execute :

git config core.filemode false
