Shifted blog to CS server

After a few trials and errors I have shifted the blog files to the my CS webspace.
It is working fine except that it seems to be much slower here. Most probably it is slow because I am keeping the MySQL database on the server. Maybe I should shift over to Berkeley DB and keep the files on my CS webspace instead.
Another thing I learnt is that to change the file permissions of all files in a directory, I should use:
UNIX> chmod -R 755 docs
[This will change the permissions of files in the “docs” directory to 755].
I know this seems pretty elementary but well I did not know :(. Anyway, SSH by default keeps the file permissions to 644 [at least on the CS server]. All these days, I have been going into the directories and manually changing the file permissions!!! I did write a Perl script sometime to do this, but it did not work properly always. Anyway, the Perl script might come in handy if the owner of the directory is “nobody” [happens sometimes for auto-generated files] or if Shell access is not there [for example, in cases of shared hosting where only FTP and cgi-bin access is given]
