Thanks, but it ain’t the FTP aspects that worry me, since my uploads via FTP always work using normal FTP clients: it’s the straight download from a publicly available web site. I’ve achieved this with binary files before (for example, with Mac installers), but now I have been bitten by this permissions thing. I have asked our hosting company about it. I obviously did something new and wrong, I just can’t work out what it was.

Uploads work fine, but I now find that when I want to access such a file via a browser using http, I get “you don’t have permission...”. I’ve set the permissions via Transmit to “everyone can read”. I think the numeric equivalent is 644, although I am not at all sure what this means.
