How to set folder permission and all subfolders in Mac terminal? You can try with these commands:

To change all the directories to 755 (-rwxr-xr-x):
find /opt/lampp/htdocs -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

To change all the files to 644 (-rw-r--r--):
find /opt/lampp/htdocs -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
