Re: File Permissions When Transferring

WinSCP by default does not set any permissions.
So either it's the default of your server. Or you have configured WinSCP to set those permission.

File Permissions When Transferring

Windows 7 to Apache server
My new host insists that files may not have a permission of 664. This seems to be the default in WinSCP, which sets off an Internal Server Error.
