Setting server-wide Umask for directories and files
For the domains/sites running on my Ubuntu 14.04 server, I had added the Linux user accounts to the www-data group. The document root (public_html) of the individual Linux user accounts that correspond to each web site are chowned to user:user.
Now, when directories or files are created through SFTP or shell, they have 775 and 664 values. Is there a way to set the umask server-wide so that all directories have 755 as default and all files have 644 as the default?
Thanks in advance.
