just one notice as this is often done wrong:

dont use
	chmod 775 -R *
for all files and directories.
for directories you need these settings but for files this setting is 
wrong: not all your files are executable (propably none is executable, 
with very, very rare exceptions)
if you use a shell with ls-coloring you always wonder about all that 
eye-catching (-hurting?) colors.

therefore I normaly use:
find . -type d -exec chmod 775 "{}" \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 664 "{}" \;

which changes the directories and files to their specific permissions. 
(you may replace the '.' (first parameter) with an appropiate path to 
your webroot if you execute it from somewhere else)
