Default CHMOD Functionality

Hello,

Would it be possible to have the option to CHMOD all files within a directory to the same value when you CHMOD the directory?

Would save people that spend a much time installing web scripts a great deal of time

If I'm not mistaken, you generally have different permissions on files than you have on folders. I can't see why you would want to CHMOD all files to match the parent folder.

Just select all files in the current directory, and then CHMOD.

Files within a directory can easily be CHMODed to 777, 755, 644, etc ... just like the parent directory.

I am quite well aware of how to CHMOD all the files at once, but it would save me quite a bit of time if I could CHMOD the contents of a folder the same time as the folder itself, and I'm sure it would benefit others that install scripts as well.

Case in point: When I install an IPB, I have to CHMOD the following to 777

/archive_out/
/lang/
/lang/en/
(24 files)
/Skin/
/Skin/s1/
(23 files)
/uploads/

Now, as it is, it requires 5 CHMOD operations. With what I'm suggesting, it would only require CHMODing

/archive_out/
/lang/
/Skin/
/uploads/

With the new feature, it would only require 1 CHMOD to accomplish the same result, and this is only a simple script. Imagine a more complex one.

I suppose it would be possible to do. Could probably piggy-back it on the same code the Delete function uses to clear out sub-files and folders before deleting the parent folder.

Jay it's a great idea. In fact it's already on our to-do list

In the meantime you can use the FTP File Search, via the tools menu to search for the script files, select all right click and CHMOD them.

I'm sorry bigstar, I did check that topic in hopes of seeing it, but it must be worded in a way that I can't understand it, not being the FTP guru that you folks are
