Setting Apache umask

Problem was that uploaded files were being assigned permissions of 0600 which is “-rw——-“. The webserver was then unable to service the files. The “0600” permissions corresponds to a umask of “066”. Instead I wanted “022” which would yield “-rw-rw-r–” or “0664”.

On Red Hat/CentOS do this:

Now restart Apache and the new umask will be in effect.
