| Curious if anyone has used mod_umask, and if so did they
| experience any problems with it ?
| From what I can tell it is the only way (other than recompiling
| apache) to change the umask of Apache-created files.
files do not have a umask.
processes have a umask.
I presume this thingie changes the umask that is in effect
when a certain class of file is created, restoring the old
umask after that creation is done. if it does not restore
the old umask, then what is the point?: just set the umask
before launching Apache, as you do with any other program.
