I have been given the task of transferring a large (Thousands of Files) Magento Installation to a different server. Being native to Windows, I simply downloaded the files to my pc and FTP'd them back in.
However, I now realise that the permissions are all incorrect, and I can't simply do each file one by one.
Is there any way to sync/copy file permissions? I'm not sure if the users/groups must be set up the same? From the appearance I simply need the Numberical permissions to be correct.
They are completely separate Servers, and the files/folders will be identical. Ubuntu 12.04 is the OS on the "new" server.
