I want all the new files I create in the directory to have specific permissions, but whenever I create a new file in the directory, it gets the default system permissions even though I used chmod -R before. Is there any way to make my permissions stick for all new files and folders I create in the subdirectory?

  • sudo mkdir --mode=define_permissions dir_name
  • sudo chown user_name dir_name
  • touch dir_name/file_name

If this does not work for you, try using ACls.
