#2399 new Feature request

(Re)store permissions

I think a great feature would be if FZ could read and
store permissions of all the files it downloaded, so it
would then have the ability to (optionally) restore
those permissions when the files are uploaded back to
the server.

This would solve a perpetual problem that I have --
whenever I use FZ to restore files, my website is
broken until I manually figure out what the permissions
should be.

Triage suggestion

It appears there has been no movement on this ticket in 11 years.

I suggest closing this ticket.

@fbennett, I'm not certain that it's even possible for an FTP client to set permissions -- as far as I know they're only able to upload files and the FTP server sets the permissions without any feedback. You could maybe try using something SSH/SFTP-based, which perhaps supports permissions.
