recursively change file folder permissions

Hi again..........its been a while since ive written my last blog post..........

I have lost touch with Unix/Linux and its commands........ite been a while(about 6-9 months) since ive used linux...... Now im completely on linux for over a month.. :)

This blog post is about converting the files and its constituent folders and files into your own files(i.e, you are the owner), if you sufficient rights to convert
........


to do it..........
step 1) go to the particular folder using "$cd folder_path"
step 2( type the chmod command with -R parameter......... "$chmod -R 777 *"
step 3) if its alright you will get the prompt, otherwise you have some error message, you may not have sufficient rights to modify the permissions of that particualr folder..

"777" gives you rights to read write exacute and "-R" refers to "recursively" do it........


cheers........rahul kavi
