I have a form that uploads images on my site. The upload is done ok, i see the files with ftp. I insert the image in a html file but the browser can not display it. I checked the permissions of the image and they are set to (owner read+write, group nothing, others nothing).The folder i am uploading the image is 0777. I want to be able to upload the image with permissions read for everyone. Can this be done?

Hmm... pretty strange, the files uploaded should by default at least have read access to everyone.
Read permission problem is really rare.... did you check the reference path of the image in your browser? Is the path pointing to the correct path and image?

try this
// Read and write for owner, read for everybody else
chmod("/my_image_directory/image_file.jpg", 0644);

That is use
chmod("/my_image_directory/image_file.jpg", 0644);

after your move_uploaded_file(); line... in your upload image page.

If you have a ftp account which runs on a different serveraccount, you possibly want to use 777 or another non restrictive chmod, otherwise you're files might be blocked from ftp removal, editing etc.

<?php
$uploaddir = "images"; // Where you want the files to upload
if(is_uploaded_file($_FILES['file']['tmp_name']))
{
move_uploaded_file($_FILES['file']['tmp_name'],$uploaddir.'/'.$_FILES['file']['name']);
chmod($uploaddir.'/'.$_FILES['file']['name'],0604);
echo $uploaddir.'/'.$_FILES['file']['name'];
}
?>

now it works fine

Hi ypogeios0101

So you got it to work with chmod(); with permission 0604. With 0644 it also worked right??
Great stuff...... :)
