File Permissions and CHMOD: How to set 777 in PHP upon file creation?

A question aboud file permissions when saving a file that when non existent, is created initially as new file.

Now, this all goes well, and the saved file appear to have mode

644
.

What to I have to change here, in order to make the files save as mode
777
?

Thanks a thousand for any hints, clues or answers. The code that I think is relevant here I have included:

/* write to file */

self::writeFileContent($path, $value);

/* Write content to file
* @param string $file Save content to wich file
* @param string $content String that needs to be written to the file
* @return bool
*/

private function writeFileContent($file, $content){
$fp = fopen($file, 'w');
fwrite($fp, $content);
fclose($fp);
return true;
}

Answer

PHP has a built in function called bool chmod(string $filename, int $mode )

http://php.net/function.chmod

private function writeFileContent($file, $content){
    $fp = fopen($file, 'w');
    fwrite($fp, $content);
    fclose($fp);
    chmod($file, 0777);  //changed to add the zero
    return true;
}
