Apache's default umask (compiled in I believe) is set as 755, and ways
of changing are apparently editing the apachectl (however i added umask
002 to this, and it made no difference) and mod_umask was created (with
mod_dav in mind I believe).
At this point, I'm thinking umask is not the way to go - since files
/must/ be 775, and umask sets files to 666 max.
Problem is - I'm at a slight loss as to how to set file creation mask
(any googling only throws up umask or mod_umask, and not much of
anything else useful).
