I am not sure if I understand.<br>0022 makes read/write access for owner and read only access for the group.. right?<br>0002 adds write access for the group..right?<br><br>So the logic of having my own group is so noone has access to my files until I specifically change groups or add someone to my group. But then they still only have readonly access why not read/write access?
<br><br>I basically want my staff to be able to upload files which can automatically be read and written to by the group specified by the setgid of the directory.<br>If users want to change the permissions they can do so manually. But by default it should be read/write accessible by group members.
<br><br>To do this should I edit /etc/bashrc?<br><br>If I change /etc/bachrc will that change to umask for all users? If so what is the value of umask on the command line? It seems to reset when you log out?<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">
