Hello. I am server newbie.I dont have a SSH access to my shared hosting plan.I need to change lots of files' permissions to install a CMS and this gets very cumbersome via FTP interface. I change each files permission one by one. I want to ask is there any other easy option for changing file permissions especially a method that helps bulk changes?

Thanks.

Most of my FTP programs will let me recursively change the permissions of entire folders (or groups of files/folders).

How do you recursively change permissions?

There is often a checkbox when you are changing file permissions that allows you to "Recurse into subdirectories" (FileZilla example). In the *nix command, you often use a -R switch.

i would recommend filezilla in general for a good sftp client:
