What controls file permissions on the IFS? We have written a PHP applications that allows users to upload images (.jpgs) from their desktop to the IFS. The upload to the IFS works fine but the file on the IFS ends up without *public Read / Execute permissions so the user can not view the image after the upload. We are on V5R3, using PHP and Apache via the PASE shell. Any assistance is appreciated.

In general, public permissions on a stream file are inherited from the public permission of the parent directory. Thus if you want the stream files to have public *RX then you must ensure the public have *RX to the parent directory.

Note that there are many ways to change this behaviour and the various stream file creation methods (open, fopen, edtf, touch, etc.) all do it differently.

You can also force the required permissions using CHGAUT, chmod, fchmod, etc. or set the appropriate mask in your job prior to file creation via umask. You could also change the stream file owner to something suitable.
