gunzip files in all sub-folders : RESOLVED


So somehow I messed up making a gz file I made as a backup while I moved a web site from one server to another. What I have now is a bunch of directories that unziped but, all the files in every directory are still FILENAME.PHP.GZ. and not unziped like the other directories.
example:
/var/www/sitename/
/var/www/sitename/folder1/
index.php.gz
/var/www/sitename/folder2/
subdir1
subdir2
index.php.gz
/var/www/sitename/folder3/
subdir1
subdir2
index.php.gz
...times hundreds of folders...

What I am hoping is that there is a way to un-compress any .gz files under a given path.

Thanks in advance!!!

Code:
find /var/www/sitename -type f -iname "*.gz" -exec gzip -d {} \;
The find command is a tool you need to become comfortable with (man find)
