Ooh, I didn't know about the -follow option to find but this means
that there are some symbolic links that point to their parent
directory or to themselves so they create a loop in the directory

You'd better remove -follow from the arguments.  My guess is that Josh
added it because he usually finds files in directories that have links
to other directories, but it's not needed here since you're searching
the whole directory tree anyway.

sudo find / -type f -name www-data

Hope this helps,
