I have looked all around the forums and have not found anything. Also I've looked all around SmartFTP itself and couldnt find it.

Maybe im blind but, how can I change the default CHMOD for all uploads? Currently everything I upload is given 777 access and I don't want that! I need it to be 644, and for the sake of not editing 1000s of files I need to change the default. Any help would be great.

You cannot set a default CHMOD in SmartFTP. But you can apply CHMOD on thousands of files and folders recursively.

To set a default CHMOD you need SSH access to the server and change the umask.
