[K12OSN] Help with file permissions

I need some help with a problem caused by an overtired system administrator, that would happen to be me.

In the process of cleaning up some permissions/ownership problems, I wasn't thinking about what I typed in and I chmod -R 777 .* on my redhat 8 file/print servers. Not realizing what I did, I left it to run completely. Now, I have a working server at the moment, but I'd like to restore everything except for /home back to what it should be. Any suggestions? I "think" doing an upgrade to Redhat 9 will do the trick, but I don't want to do that on production servers in the middle of the school year. Thanksgiving or Christmas, perhapes.
