I had a phpBB forum running on http://forums.zorfox.net/
(I know, you think this should go in the PHP/MySQL forum, but let me finish!)
I uploaded the subBlack theme from www.phpBB.com.
Now, the stupid person who made it chmoded all files 0600. The theme killed my forum when it tried to read from the files. I was in for either 1 hour of deleting and then reconfiurating the forum, or 1 hour of chmoding files.
Well, thank goodness for Perl. Within minutes, I had all the files chmoded and working. (Well actually it took me about 15 minutes to figure that I should USE perl in the first place and another 15 to figure out how to do it, but I could
have done it in minutes.)
Thank you mass chmoding! [ January 25, 2003, 08:51 AM: Message edited by: Zorfox ]
