chmod -R changes permissions recursively

See man chmod

Recursive:
Code:

chmod -R o-x dirname/
would take recursively eXecution permissions off from "other" users (than owner or owner group). So just use chmod (or chown for owners) with the -R flag to make it run recursively, i.e. do the job for all sub-files and -diretories (directories are, by the way, only special files on UNIX).
