We have upgraded to from WHM 56 to WHM 58 running EA 4 with MariaDB 10.0.26

Since upgrade, everything has been running smoothly except for file permissions.

Each time we setup a private directory on a subdomain, by default it applies permission 750 to .psswrd directory. This causes the website to have 500 error reponse. I think the correct settings WHM should apply is 755

Is there are way to force WHM to set permission on a directory by default so we can apply 755 to .passwrd each time a private directory is being created.

We never had this issue before on WHM 56.

Hello,

Could you let us know the specific steps you are taking to create this directory? For instance, are you using a specific option in cPanel/WHM or a third-party FTP/SSH client?

Thank you.
