Chocolate bars may worsen the crisis. Try some deep breathing.

I believe most file settings can be set at 644 and the owner should be
www-data or apache.

You can set permissions recursively for all sub-directories.

chown -R www-data:www-data directory

chmod -R 644 directory

I am typing these from memory so you might want to Google it.

Try making sure the owner is set correctly before you start changing the
read write permissions.

I use Teraterm and have found it much more speech friendly.

Subject: Drupal 6 File Permissions



I'm hoping this won't be a long process, but Oh well if it is. I didn't
understand what would happen when I dumped my installation onto a Linux
server with file permissions. I need to find the documentation that tells
the optimal file permissions to set for the Drupal site, and I need to
change the owner to Apache, or at least I think I do, rather than me. So
far, I'm unhappy with my setup on my Windows box. I have NVDA and Putty, but
I can't hear the characters I type. I have JAWS, but when content scrolls
past the bottom of the screen, it speaks the whole screen. I tried to
install Cygwin, but failed to get it working. Right now, I'm under a
deadline and very frustrated. So now that I've ranted a while, what do I do
once I've ingested a few chocolate bars to calm down?
