server config, <VirtualHost>, <Global>, <Anonymous>, <Directory>
The DirFakeMode directive configures a mode (or permissions) which will be displayed for ALL files and directories in directory listings. For each subset of permissions (user, group, other), the "execute" permission for directories is added in listings if the "read" permission is specified by this directive. As with DirFakeUser, and DirFakeGroup, the "fake" permissions shown in directory listings are cosmetic only, they do not affect real permissions or access control in any way on the server. Note that DirFakeMode can affect the real permissions, for example, for FTP mirroring tools. Such tools tend to create a mirror from what the tool sees (e.g. DirFakeMode permissions) on the source FTP server.
DirFakeMode 0640 Will result in: -rw-r----- ... arbitrary.file drwxr-x--- ... arbitrary.directory
