CHMOD 777 on localhost (library folder), what happen if I upload it on a server ?

Hello,

I chmoded (recursive) to 777 my library folder on localhost.

If I then release one addon, will the files uploaded on a production server be back to a normal CHMOD ?

Regards.

Just curious, why do you need to do this?
Code:
# ls -lha library
total 44K
drwxr-xr-x.  9 root root 4.0K Aug  3 00:39 .
drwxr-xr-x.  8 root root 4.0K Aug  3 00:39 ..

Because on my localhost server, I have a tool that write some words in a .txt file (that file needs to be in library).
But I can't fopen if it's not chmoded 777.
After uploading this .txt file on my production server, I don't want the any folder in library to be 777.

It shouldn't upload as 777 when you do, but it's best to upload and verify it when you do upload and change permissions accordingly.

So it's shouldnt, that was the awnser I wanted to read ^^ I'll watch carefully after uploading btw, just in case...

Thanks you very much Kovifor.
