It's recursive call day!

Recursively chmod directories only
June 19th, 2006
find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

This will recursively search your directory tree (starting at dir ‘dot’) and chmod 755 all directories only.

Similarly, the following will chmod all files only (and ignore the directories):

find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Had some issues with git similar to these...
Git chmod problem: Checkout screws exec bit . 644 for files, 755 for dirs, apparently because without executable rights, you can only list the dir's contents, not enter them. Whaddyano?
