i'm using fopen to create and open a file. it creates the file however it's permissions are 0644. of course the drag is i can't edit the file in my ftp program nor change the permissions because i don't have permission.

i can't use chmod on my server. is there any way to set the permissions when you create the file??

'create file x and set the permissions to 0666' or something like that??

thanks for looking this over.

If PHP can create the file surely it can chmod it too?  http://us2.php.net/chmod

Alterantively, PHP will let you set the umask the same as you could on a server: http://us2.php.net/manual/en/function.umask.php

Set the umask you want first and then create the file; it should come out fine.

umask did the trick. thanks!

i can't set anything to 777, i can do 666 but 0's don't get me anywhere. ones do 666.

i don't know a ton about all this, i'm just learning. maybe i'm doing something wrong. but for now this works.

thanks for your help
