Problem With VSFTPD And CHMOD


Hello forum members, I have a problem with vsftpd.
I want all files that I upload via ftp will have chmod 770, meaning all files would have the execute flag.
Now I know there is an option in the vsftpd.conf which called “local_umask”, and I have set it up to be - local_umask=0007 , buy unfortunately it is still doesn’t work.
Does anyone know the answer to my problem?
Thanks
DrA

umask doesn't handle executable bits for ordinary files (only for directories).
it can only provide r and for ordinary files.
