    Hi


    How can i change the permissions from root to nginx using ssh?

    I know that i can do it on a folder using:

    Code:
    chown -R nginx:nginx public
    But how can i include all folders and subfolders and all files in the public?

    Thanks

    the -R command makes it recursive so every directory and file within public gets the chown applied :)

    that command would apply to everything within the current directory and all sub directories and files within current directory
