PHP Upload Doesn't Follow umask Specification
Today, I encountered a problem. I needed Apache and PHP to store files with the permission mask of 664 (rw-rw-r--). So I set the umask to 002 for Apache. Everything worked fine until I tried to upload a file using web server POST. The file stored on the hard disk has a permission of 600 (rw-------). No amount of umask tinkering would solve the problem. Nothing on the web was any help either. Many people had the same problems, but no body has answers.
After a few hours of tinkering and trying new things, I finally figured out a work around. The PHP upload handler uses the $_FILES variable with an efficient "move_uploaded_file" function call. I replaced the "move_uploaded_file" function call with the "copy" function call. Now it works wonderfully, the resulting file has the right permission. The temporary file, with the wrong permission, is automatically deleted by PHP. I'm a happy camper.
