I've just moved to a new server and have come across some strange permissions issues.
Every file I upload has permissions of 600, owned by the user account and is also in the same group. With this permission, the server is unable to make changes to these files.
The folder I'm uploading to (via regular sftp) has permissions of 755.
Why are any new files I upload here given this permission of 600? And how do I change it so that files added are given permissions so they can be modified by the webserver?
Note: I installed vsftpd which has a setting in it to determine the default umask. Logging in via this ftp it works as expected. This does not fix the problem however when logging in via sftp.
