Use find to change permissions to some files

You ca use find command with -exec option to change permissions to some files.
Here some examples:


find . -type d -exec chmod a+rx {} \;

to add read (list) and access permission to current directory and all subdirectories,

find . -name "*.php" -exec chmod a+x {} \;

to add execution permission to all php files.
