So let's say I have a folder 'storage' with 777 permission, and I copy a file 'foo.bar' of 555 permission into it.
Is there a way I can make 'foo.bar' automatically change to 777 permission?
Unless foo.bar should be executable it should be permissions 666 not 777. As far as I know there is no way to accomplish what you're attempting to do. You could set a crontab to automatically chown the files... but this is a "bad idea"(tm).
Perhaps if you explain WHY you want to do this we can give you a better solution.
