Permissions propagating to subfolders & files


Redhat 7.2

Hi,

I noticed that when I change permissions on a folder that the subfolders and files do not receive the same permissions. Therefore I have to change the permissions on those folders and files individually.

If I want to assign the same permissions to all subfolders and files in a directory, isn't there a way to automatically change permissions for folders and their contents at the same time rather than one at a time?

Thanks for any comments.

Is there a way to set is so every file you add to the directory are given rwx for a group. My example is on a fileserver and users can rwx the files they add to the shared folder but no one elses.
