Set umask for another user
I have two users who are only ftp users I set them up using this guide
I would like to change their default permissions when creating files to 775 instead of 755.
It seems like what I want is umask.
But umask doesn’t have an option to set for another user, only the logged in user (
umask 002) and these users do not have ssh login, only ftp access.
So I need some way of changing the umask of these users as root or sudo.
There appears to be ~.profile but I changed the settings in here and it didn’t make a difference
Can anyone explain where I can change the umask for these users?
