I got a folder that I transfer stuff to all the time.
the folder is in chmod 775 but when i upload folders and files, they are given chmod 700, but i want it chmod 775 everytime i upload something.
This is your umask, it sets default permissions on new files. Check your ~/.bashrc or /etc/profile for what your default umask is being set to. If you are using FTP to transfer these files, check your FTP daemons config file for the effective umask value.
Here is the man page excerpt for umask:
umask [-p] [-S] [mode]
The user file-creation mask is set to mode. If mode
begins with a digit, it is interpreted as an octal
number; otherwise it is interpreted as a symbolic mode
mask similar to that accepted by chmod(1). If mode is
omitted, the current value of the mask is printed.
The -S option causes the mask to be printed in sym-
bolic form; the default output is an octal number. If
the -p option is supplied, and mode is omitted, the
output is in a form that may be reused as input. The
return status is 0 if the mode was successfully
changed or if no mode argument was supplied, and false
