Umask [ Umask file octal-mask [directory octal-mask]]
server config, <Anonymous>, <VirtualHost>, <Directory>, <Global>, .ftpaccess
0.99.0 and later
Umask sets the mask applied to newly created file and directory permissions within a given context. By default, the Umask in the server configuration, <VirtualHost> or <Anonymous> block is used, unless overridden by a "per-directory" Umask setting. Any arguments supplied must be an octal number, in the format 0xxx. An optional second argument can specify a Umask to be used when creating directories. If a second argument isn't specified, directories are created using the default Umask in the first argument. For more information on umasks, consult your operating system documentation/man pages.
Proftpd will not create files that have the execution bit turned on, this is a security driven design decision. The permissions of the uploaded file can be changed by issuing a SITE CHMOD command can be used to change the mode of the uploaded file. Syntax of the command is: SITE CHMOD <mode> <file>.
