The rm command man pages discusses removing files or directories recursively. So what is meant by deleting a file or directory recursively? And what are some reasons for doing so?

General :: Setting Sticky Bit Recursively Only On Directories

Jun 23, 2010

I have a folder that contains my group's website. The ownership of the entire directory is set to "www-data.website" (website being a group). I want to set the sticky bit on this directory such that if anyone creates a new file, either in the main directory or subdirectories, the ownership remains like above.

Q1: I have the sticky bit set on the main directory (drwxrwsr-x). But for some reason, some of the subdirectories don't have the sticky bit set. Is there a command I can use to change the sticky bit on Directories Only (i.e., not on the files)?
Q2: Is there a sticky bit that I can set for the ownership (not group) so that it is always set to www-data?

General :: CHMOD And Highlighted Directories In Terminal

Mar 16, 2010

So I gave the following permission using sudo su to some directories:
sudo a+x -R ~/<SOME FOLDER>/*
sudo a+w -R ~/<SOME FOLDER>/*

After doing this, I can access write and read all directories but my terminal shows these folders highlighted and I really dont like this. Is there any way they can look like before (with no highlights)?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Chmod To Function Recursively

Jan 12, 2011

it seems to me I can't get chmod to function recursively. I have a folder with a couple subdirectories in it and a few in each of those etc. Now, I want to give everyone read-write on all .c files. So, I typed in terminal:

Code: chmod -R 666 *.c However, none of the .c files in any of the subdirectories were touched, i.e. I could have accomplished exactly the same thing by typing

Code: chmod 666 *.c I did RTFM, and it seems that what I did initially should have been the ticket. What am I doing wrong?

General :: Make All Files Non-executable Recursively Using Find Without Affecting Directories?

Sep 26, 2010

I need to strip the executable flag from all files within a certain directory and sub directories. Right now I'm doing it with a 2 step process

find /dir/ -type f -exec chmod ugo-x {} ;
find /dir/ -type d -exec chmod ugo+rx {} ;

Is it possible to modify the first line so that I can strip exec flag from all non-directory files? Since this needs to be done on a fairly regular basis across a lot of directories and files, I'd prefer not to use a bash script which would slow it down.

General :: Replace ":" From Multiple Files Names - Even Recursively In Directories

Jan 31, 2010

I need to replace ":" from multiple files names, since I am going to copy those files from a linux partition, which admit the ":" to a FAT32 partition, which does not.

Example:
original name: eg06_ana_21-05-06_09:21:03.JPG
wished name: eg06_ana_21-05-06_09-21-03.JPG

I have googled a lot but I have not been able to adapt the examples given by people to my aim.

It seems that rename command is what I should use, but I have no idea to build the correct pearl expression.

I am to rename all the files within a directory (which contains multiple subdirectories) recursively without invalid characters.

echo mv "$file" "${file%$oldfile}$newfile"
code....

but I get an error on both of them stating "find: bad option -printf find: [-H | -L] path-list predicate-list"

Ubuntu :: Chmod Ugo+rwx / Not Able To Access The Directories?

Dec 19, 2009

I have an external fat32 hard drive. It already has some files on it. Now, I mounted it and it shows the owner to be root. fine. but when I change the permissions, it does not seem to change it. I am not able able to access the directories, even as root !.I was able to create directories, but "luckybackup" wan not able to write to it due to permissions. I take it the lucky backup is executing as root/ but even otherwise, if I do chmod ugo+rwx, why do the permissions dont change ? (no erorr message by chmod).
here is the stuff: (ext drive mounted at /seagate)

rootubuntu--seagate# chmod ugo+rwx *
rootubuntu--seagate# ls -l
total 128
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 32768 2008-08-11 21:03 HPComputerKeyFolders
drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 32768 2008-08-11 21:02 Other
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 32768 2007-04-06 18:27 Recycled

May 17, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04

I want to copy all directories, files, and hidden files and hidden directories with one command. I want these items to replace any same items in the target directory.

I have tried several things, such as:

cp -r *

General :: Get The Last Change Time Of Directory Recursively

May 28, 2011

How can I get the last time any of the files in a directory or its subdirectories has changed?
e.g

Dir - changed 1/1/1
Sub Dir 1 - changed 2/1/1
Sub Dir 2 - changed 3/1/1
File 1 - changed 10/1/1
File 2 - change 5/1/1


The output for this for Dir should be 10/1/1 (File 1 was the last modified one). Getting the last file name to be modified is a bonus but isn't necessary.

General :: Change The Default Chmod Settings For Account?

I work in a shared computing environment and the default setting is r-x for group and others; it's upto the users to change this. I can chmod and change the permissions for all the files. However any new files created all have the default permissions. Is there anyway to change that so that I don't have to chmod everytime or run chmod as a cronjob?

General :: Chmod Doesn't Change Permissions On Files In Subdirs

May 15, 2011

I have a Qnap 219p NAS to which I have connected a USB external harddrive. I can access the external harddrive from my windows box using the network share, but at first i couldn't access the folders. The permissions set in the NAS GUI for the external drive is correct and are identical to the permissions set to the 2 internal drives.

I ssh'ed to the nas and used 'chmod -R 770 /share/external/sds1' - this granted me access to the folders, and some files. I can open all files in the root, but if I go just 2 folders 'deeper', i can't open the files in this folder, and in the folders after that.

In ssh, if i navigate to the folder wher I cannot open the files and use 'ls -l', i can see that the permissions (770) hasn't been applied to these files. How can I get chmod to apply the 770 permission to all files, folders, subfolders and files in subfolders etc., without having to chmod every folder one by one?

Software :: Command Line: Chown Command Recursively On Invisible Directories?

Oct 25, 2010

I tried

Code:

chown -R owner:group *

which does not work on the invisible directories (why?). When I used ".*" as wildcard it changed all (visible) files including the parent directory (the one I was currently working in which is the "dot") . I can change the invisible directories owner and group using dophin but how is it done from the command line?

Ubuntu Security :: Chmod Does Not Change Permission?

Sep 3, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.4 on an Intel machine. The machine also has Windows 7. So some of the partitions of the hard drive are Windows compatible (NTFS). They are all mounted when system is booted with Ubuntu and all files are accessible. However, when I try to change permission or limit access to a group, CHMOD command does not work. It doesn't return any error and everything seems to work fine but I can't change any permission.
