    Anyone know what the settings are for the Plesk version of suexec? The -V switch does not work for the plesk version.

    I'm trying to debug what looks like a umask issue and it would help if I knew the default umask in suexec (if any).

    I got an answer from sw-soft. The plesk version of suexec is not compiled with a umask setting. So it is possible to set a default umask in the apache startup file. Exactly how you do this will depend on your flavor or Linux/UNIX.

    I have tried the umask setting in the apachectl start script and it made no difference =/

    Hi WaDavid,

    I have found that with suexec in general the umask setting is a pain in the !#$. When possible, try to set the umask in the script itself. In cases where that is not possible, I sometimes setup a cronjob to correct file permissions. Yes it's a major work around but it does work. :)

    Hope that helps
