Maybe try man chmod. You want a recursive option iirc. Maybe -r?

I'm trying to do the same thing on a MDK 9.0 box but it won't do all the folders under the main folders. I am using chmod 775 -R ftp and none of the dir under ftp will be changed.

you can do ls -l <directory> and see the permission, it should be rwxrwxrwx, if not, then try to make the directory be owned by your user name and group, like chown <user>:<group> <directory>
