Directory Attributes Tab (Options Dialog Box)

Getting There

Use this tab to configure default attributes for new directories you create on the server.

Set default directory attributes on creation

Select this option to set default permissions for newly created directories on the server. You can specify permissions using either the Permission Mode box, or using the Owner, Group, and Public check boxes.


  • To be queried for directory permissions each time you create a new directory, you can configure Site Properties > Directories > Show attributes before creating directory. When this setting is enabled, the Directory Attributes dialog box is displayed before the new directory is created on the server.
  • When Set default directory attributed on creation is selected, the client sends a chmod command to the server to set the permissions you have specified. If your server does not support this command, you will receive a server error message that the chmod command is unrecognized.
