Chmod wont stick

view full story

http://serverfault.com – I'm using CentOS on a virtual dedicated server. When I go in as root, and change the chmod value of a folder it works. But, any files I place into that folder do not inherit the chmod I set. This is what I used: chmod -Rv 777 files the return was this: mode of `files' retained as 0777 (rwxrwxrwx) mode of `files/1344188366-f7cad6aa87685db775817d4168c329ef-AUTO_INSURANCE2.csv' changed to 0777 (rwxrwxrwx) Okay so one file changed. But if I place any files into that folder they will have a different chmod value. How do I make chmod stick with every file and folder within that directory? T (HowTos)
