In my Linux box I have two directories:
- work files with wrong permissions
- older versions of the same files with the right permissions (permissions and users and groups)
I need to syncronize the permissions only without changing the file contents. I tried rsync but I can't find a suitable option. Can you give me some advice?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks to your suggestions I have this script. It recursively changes the subtree permissions:
#!/bin/bash cd good find $1/* | while read DIR do chown --reference="$DIR" "/bad/$DIR" chmod --reference="$DIR" "/bad/$DIR" done
Not a masterpiece but it works for me.
