umask and default file permission

i am working on a web project that runs on freebsd.

currently all the file that created dynamically by the internet user (they upoad file through web browser) has a default file permission of 0644.

however, i need these files to have a default extension of 0755 in order to have my perl code working.

i changed the umask from 022 to 000 for both user and root and nothing happens. every time i re-logged back in and my umask number stays the same.

i am very confuse and don't know what to do.

thanks for anybody that can give me a hand.

In linux, what you would do is to set the suid and guid bit on the folder they are uploading to. Been a long time since I did this but I think it's something like
chmod=0755 /path/to/directory
chmod +s /path/to/directory
