This is documentation about a configuration directive, which can be placed within Movable Type’s core configuration file, mt-config.cgi, to customize the behavior of the system.

When creating files and directories, Movable Type uses umask settings to control the permissions set on the files. If you are running under cgiwrap or suexec, you should use a value of 0022 for all of these settings.

Default values: 0111 (DBUmask, HTMLUmask, UploadUmask), 0000 (DirUmask)
