How do I change permissions for a folder and all of its subfolders and files in one step in Linux?
I would like to change permissions of a folder and all its sub folders and files in one step (command) in Linux. I have already tried the below command but it works only for the mentioned folder: chmod 775 /opt/lampp/htdocs Is there a way to set `chmod 755` for `/opt/lampp/htdocs` and all of its content including subfolders and files? Also, in the future, if I create a new folder or file inside `htdocs`, how can the permissions of that automatically be set to `755`? I had a look at this link too: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3740187/how-to-set-default-chmod-in-linux-terminal Thanks in advance. : http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3740187/how-to-set-default-chmod-in-linux-terminal
