if you want to preserve permission, you need to use -p too.

Do you know that there exists something called the man pages (the manual
pages) for each command on your system ?
so if you run 'man cp', you get a list of all the options of cp and how
it works.

no offense, i am still reading them every day.
i think at this point, you really need to read them carefully.

otherwise at every new question you will ask you will get back a RTFM.
