I think I figured it out!!  If I am correct, then it is not an Anjuta problem after all.

Some of the students created the files through Anjuta.  They opened up the editor and created a new file then typed in their code and it was successful.

Other students would go to the file browser, right click and create an empty document, then they would open it up with Anjuta and edit it.  I believe that those are the students that are having the file permission problems.  Those files end up getting 600 for their file permissions.

I will test it out next week in class.

> I am getting my class to create php files and then view them through a browser.  Some of them are having problems viewing the file on my FC5 server.  They'll get permission denied, warning ... line 0..., or forbidden error messages.  I've been manually changing their file permissions to 755 and then the page works.

> - when a file was created through vi, the file permission was 661.  No errors opening the file in the browser.
> The umask of all users is 0002.  I believe that is fine since they are the only user in their group.
> 1.  What's going on?  I created the users through the same script and some are having file permission issues and others are not.
> 2.  Why aren't the default file permissions set to 775 if the umask is 0002?
> 3.  How can I get Anjuta or any other gui editor to set the default file permission to 755 or 661 or anything else?
