Setting File / Directory Permission, with sticky
I would like to set a directory's permission to be recursive. For instance:

I have 2 users: chris, john
They both belong to a development group: develop

I would like to set the folder /var/www/html/ and any of it's sub folders to apply the owner and group permissions correctly.

drwxrsxr-x <- is what I am looking for... but I want it to work.

I have seen this done, but have had some trouble making mine work in the same fashion.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

it should be...


What exactly doesn't work? If you make a file/folder in this directory, the files/folders should be in the same group as this directory.

ok .. yep had the permission flags wrong...

Well I am still at the point of, how do I set the permission to reflect that? I am not yet graceful at the command line. What commands do I need.

heh I know what I want it to do, but not fully how to get there.
