File permissions for web site files/folders

I have pure-ftpd set up on my server, with thttpd running a web site. I've set up virtual users in pure-ftpd and linked one with the website folder (/srv/www/htdocs).

I can successfully upload/rename, etc... any files in that folder, but when I upload new files, the permissions are not correct for thttpd. The folder needs to be 711 or 755 and the files need to be 644.

Is there any way to configure the pure-ftpd to always post files with certain permissions? And taking it to the next step, posting folders with different permissions?

I know that I should be able to do this, as it's very common to upload website files through ftp (in fact I know of no other way).

Please advise.

I'm not familiar with pure-ftpd, but the setting you're looking for is the default 'mask' that the server applies to incoming files.

If the server doesn't have options to support this, you could always write a cron job to set the permissions on the directories correctly at a given interval (or get an FTPd that does).

scp and rsync are just a couple of examples of uploading files to a site without employing FTP
