Question Does re-uploading affect permissions?

Hi there,
I made some changes to a file an re-uploaded it to the server and then the associated pages could not be viewed online. Someone told me the permissions had been changed. ZCan this hapen by re-uploading, and/or would permissions on a file determine if pages can be viewed online???
Thanks for your help!

Not knowing what your uploading, how your uploading it, or where it's uploading to, the generic answer is the simple action of uploading a file does not by itself set the permissions.

Normally, permissions are set on the destination directory/folder and the stored file will inherit those permissions, i.e. owner can read/write and others read only. Once the file is stored, you can change the permissions if your remote access method/tool/app allows changes.

Now, you could have uploaded a file with a different name than what the server application is looking for. Example: You uploaded file.htm and your web page HTML code is looking for file.html
