I've started to learn about how to set up a Linux server (especially web servers). So therefore I've installed Debian in a Virtual Machine and set up a web server with a phpbb forum (local web server). After putting the phpbb files in the /var/www directory, I had to change the permissions of the files, according to this guide. However, the problem is that I had to enter a CHMOD command for each seperate file and folder, and this is really annoying. As a last resort, I've selected all files and gave everyone the Write permission in the Permissions Tab. It works, but won't be good for security. Now I'm wondering if there's a tool to select multiple files or folders, and apply a CHMOD number to the selection at once (graphical interface preferred)? Or is there an FTP client for Linux that I can use to apply permissions to local files?
