I need someone to help me now with basic ubuntu administration.  I need to locate files and change permissions.  These files are used to serve web pages.  I can pay $50 per hour.  Once this change is complete some tutoring will be helpful also.  I cna send a personal check

To find a file, you use the find command

To change permissions, you use the chmod command

Try this, running as root:

To find your files: use locate command http://www.codecoffee.com/tipsforlinux/articles/20.html
To change permissions use chmod: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chmod
Maybe you need to take ownership of files, chown can do: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chown

Good luck.

For Webex I think you'll like this site:


It gives you very nice flash videos on how to do just about anything in it.

What files are you looking for?

What permissions changes do you require?

Do you want to know how to do it or are you just wanting to pay someone to do it for you?

I think you need to specify then exactly what you want to know how to do (perhaps give us examples of what files you want to find, etc.) because the way I see it we've already said how to do what you asked (finding files, changing permissions, webex howto's).
