Weird permissions for new created files and folders (SFTP)
I know there is
pam_umask that controls permissions for newly created files and folders. The default settings are active in
/etc/login.defs (umask 022) and
pam_umask is activated using the file
umask 022 effects, that new files have permissions of
644 and folders
But something is weird there. When I connect via SFTP, new folders have a permission of
775 (umask 002) and new files the default
644 (umask 022).
Why do they have different permissions? Is there a way to configure different default permissions for files and folders? But I changed nothing of the default configuration and my
.profile is untouched.
