Hey guys,

I´m using this code...

$CategoryTitle = $this->Categories()->First()->Title;
$CategoryTitle = preg_replace('/[^A-Za-z0-9]+/','-',$CategoryTitle);
$CategoryTitle = preg_replace('/-+/','-',$CategoryTitle);
$uploadField->setFolderName('Uploads/Products/' . $CategoryTitle); create folders with the name of current category, so I automatically get a nice organized structure.

The problem is that the folders, that the system created, gets chmod 755 and I get a permission-denied-error.
To fix this, I must set chmod from the folder and all other folders & files in this folder to 777 by hand.

Any idea where php-function "mkdir" sit to manage chmod or are there any other suggestions to set permission from all things in the Upload-directory to 777 automatically?

why dont you try giving making the chown to the webserver user (_www) ? i think thats will be better rather than making assets folder 777
