Question

Files created through sFTP are always 777

Posted May 28, 2014 1.7k views
Hi :) I followed these two tutorials to setup my Server: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/initial-server-setup-with-ubuntu-12-04 https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-linux-nginx-mysql-php-lemp-stack-on-ubuntu-12-04 I want to login to the server with my IDE (Aptana) and create/edit/delete files: sudo chown -R my-user:www-data /folder-name This worked, I was able to create files and folders, but these folders all have the 777 file permissions. Is there a way to change this behavior so instead they are created with 755?

You should be able to change the default file permissions for files created with Aptana via sftp in the its preferences dialog. Check the settings in Aptana Studio > Publishing > FTP
