The default file permission for new files on the *nix system may be set
to something like 755... that could be the problem...

Subject: [PHP] Does this seem odd? File Upload Permissions

Why does PHP set the execute bit on an uploaded file?  This means a user
could upload a script and it would be executable.  Ouch!  Especially if
the file is available via httpd after upload. . . HELP.

I am saving to a directory with permissions of 766

And when php copies the file it assigns the following permissions.  


I am using the copy command to move the file from the tmp directory.
