linux file permissions

XK8ER asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-16
hello there,
I am running centos on a web server and I run a php software that has over 100 files and dirs and a lof of them have different file permissions.
every month there is a new software update and I receive the zip file by email.. so what I do is upload the file and unzip it.. then set permissions all over again..
is it possible to unzip and keep the original file permissions? or unzip in a new location and then copy/overwrite but keep old permissions?
