How to set chmod for a folder and all of its subfolders and files in Windows?

Is there a way to set chmod 755 for /project and all of its content including subfolders and files? Also, if I create a new folder or file, how can the chmod of that automatically be set to 755?

chmod is a Unix/Linux command

Are you asking how to set permissions on a Windows server, or a Windows desktop?


Actually I download a player form

While integrating this, the very first step is to provide chmod 0755 permissions to all player files and folders.

documentation this is the link to the documentation.

please help. I know nothing so please bear with me.

Thanks again.

Well, 0755 gives permissions to read, write and execute to the file owner, and permissions to read and execute to everybody else.


ohk. So, how do I do this.

Sorry - I’ve never used a Windows server.

There seems to be quite a bit of information around if you search for it. For example:

On your Windows computer

  • Right-click on the folder
  • click on properties
  • click on security tab
  • click edit
  • check appropriate checkboxes
  • click apply

On a live site, you should be able to set permission using your FTP app


A screen shot in your other thread shows you using Filezilla. In that you can right-click and choose File Permissions…
