FTP upload Problem

    I have one annoying problem on my Suse 10.1 / ISPConfig 2.28 Webserver.
    Whenever you upload a site via ftp (using the web administrator's username), the file permissions on the server are wrong afterwards; the site can not be viewed in the browser.
    To me personally, this is not a problem, I can connect to the server via putty and change the permissions manually after uploading.
    But my clients do complain about it.
    What can I do about it? Is this a ftp server configuration issue?

    Yes. You can set the default permissions for uploaded files in the proftpd.conf file (if you use proftpd).

    Hello Till,

    no, I'm using vsftpd.
    I have already set the 'local_umask' value to 022 (and to other values after that). After that I always restarted vsftpd and made a new ftp connection, but the permissions on the server are always 0600 when I upload something.
    Am I missing something? Any ideas?

    Thank you,

    What's the output of
    netstat -tap
    ? What's in /etc/vsftpd.conf?

    the problem is solved now, though I don't know why.
    It suddenly worked without me changing anything. (Yeah I know, everyone tells you so, though it normaly doesn't work after changing nothing... :D )

    Thanks for your help anyway!
