I'm not super familiar with the permissions structure in Drupal 7 so I'm not sure if this is actually an Apache question or a Drupal question.
I have a style.css file in /sites/all/themes/mytheme/css/ that I need to edit via FTP. That css folder also contains files that are edited via the Omega Tools UI. It appears that each time I use the UI to change style information, Drupal changes the owner of the css folder from ftpuser to www and gives it permissions 754 (group cannot write).
I am okay with the owner changing to www but I need to be able to edit my style.css file via FTP, so I need permissions to be 774. Is there a way I can set a default permissions structure on a folder or on Drupal in general that sets permissions to 774 instead of 754 whenever the system changes the owner of a folder?
