    How to CHMOD files within multiple subfolders

    What is the linux command to chmod file types within multiple subfolders? I have a lot of cgi files in many different subfolders within the cgi-bin. There are even subfolders within subfolders. I will need to chmod filetypes (*.cgi)

    Try using chmod -R. This will forecefully change the permissions on all folders recursively.
