mkdir creates folders with 777 permission by default. How can I make 755 default?
Also when I clone a git repository all the files and folders are downloaded with 777 permission! How can I correct this problem?
Workaround is add
.bashrc or similar.
The short version (assuming I'm interpreting it correctly) is 0777 is applied to everything under the mnt; however, anything in ~ is fair game. The file or directory needs to stay there though or it will revert back to 0777 when you move it into mnt.
Here is what I did to get the permissions to stick, but I'm not sure how to make it default to a specific permissions upon creation.
cd ~ cd .. mv mnt/c/mydir/myfile.ext chmod 755 myfile.ext
By the way, be sure you run WSL as administrator.
