How can I set the umask for the Apache user to have files default to -rwxrwx--- ?

I have an application that wants one directory to have either 0750 or 0770 permissions, which is great if it’s local, but if I try mount the directory on a CIFS share, chmod has no effect on the directory mount point permissions.

I’ve read that if the umask is set differently, it will mount properly - just am unsure how to do that.

    You will need to set the umask for whatever software is running as the apache user (presumably Apache httpd, or something running thereunder?). Adding Windows sharing protocols compounds the troubles. – thrig Oct 23 '17 at 2:10
  • @thrig - the share I have available is presented as CIFS (by a *nix box somewhere) - NFS is not an option here – warren Oct 23 '17 at 12:09
