If you need to change permissions for all the files or all the folders in a specific directory, then you will need these commands:

For changing files’ permissions:


find /path/to/directory -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

For changing folders permissions:


find /path/to/directory -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

Or, you already changed the directory to the desired path, you can use these commands:

 

For files:


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

and for directories (folders):


find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
