ProFTPD Umask question.....

Is it possible to set Umask more than 1 time in proftpd.conf file?
For example:
<directory /home/dir1/ *>
Umask 022

<directory /home/dir2/ *>
Umask 002

<directory /home/dir3/ *>
Umask 007

Probably... However, it will probably depend also a lot on your <LIMIT> and <ALLOW> code to ensure those directories contain the necessary permissions... Or I could be just guessing.. Yeah, that's most likely

If this is necessary I'd personally (if it's not time intensive) set up a cron job to adjust the permissions on the files in X directory every hour; assuming that the umask in each directory doesn't end up working as shown above.

Good Luck, and let us know how things go!
