I don't know how it works on non-Unix systems, but on Unix, the owner will be the EUID of the process. That is, if the process at the moment of the mkdir has root priviledges, the new directory will be owned by root. Otherwise, it will be owned by whichever user the process was running as.

This is indeed something that has nothing to do with Perl, but all with the OS. It's unclear to me what you mean by "server". (Disk server? FTP server? Mail server? NFS server? NIS server? Application server? Database server? Jumpstart server? Media server? Quake server?) Not that that is relevant. Some, insecure, OSses allow you to "give away" files, but more secure OSses will not allow you to determine who owns files or directories.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
