UMASK 022 Being Ignored?

  • # January 17, 2013 at 2:03 pm

    Hey all,

    I’m having trouble with one of my VPS’s and can’t figure this issue out.

    For some reason when files are uploaded through non-root accounts files are set at 600 and folders at 700.

    Even though the global umask is set at 022.

    If I upload via the root account it functions as expected.

    Server is running Ubuntu 12.04

    Works perfect.
