My apple MAC laptop finally died on me when i chucked coffee all over it. I have been using apple for 5 years to develop our websites and maintain our unix based servers. I decided i would get a windows 8 PC. The thing i cant get my head around is how file permissions work on PCs. If i have a web folder on the windows PC and i upload it via sftp with filezilla FTP client what will the permissions be. Ideally i want any file uploaded to be 644 and any folder 755. If i require anything else i can set it manually with PUTTY etc.
The SFTP client i used on my apple mac (transmit) had a default setting. You could set it to automatically set the file permissions of a file or folder to the default each time a file is uploaded. In other words when i uploaded a file via Transmit it would upload then automatically set the file permissions to 644.
I have looked through the settings in Filezilla and don't see any default permissions for files or folders. Since permissions in windows work differently than unix systems i wondered if Filezilla already does set any file uploaded from a windows system to 644 and hopefully folders to 755. If not how can i be sure the permissions on the files / folders.
Ultimately i don't want to have to check / set permissions for each file individually because this would take hours. This problem could present me with a major security risk.
Hope you can help
