Setting the default umask for web-content...
One of the issues we've had with multiple users managing web-content and directory permissions is related to properly setting umask, specifically modifying the default RHEL6 umask value of 022 (022 only allows for group reading) - this causes significant problems when multiple individuals are managing content. We've side-stepped this problem by simply setting default umask values within the various login shell profiles, for example:
[root@winterberry /home]# vim /home/cdgrieb/.cshrc
[root@winterberry /home]# vim /home/cdgrieb/.bash_profile
A default value of 002 allows for owner/group reading/writing, which makes managing multiple web-based users significantly easier to deal with.
