[thelist] Apache configuration on OSX

I'm setting up the Apache web server on my OS X computer as my internal web 
server. However, I've seen that when I upload files to it it chmod's them as 
740 while I need 644.

I assume I can change this default chmod in the proper configuration file. 
Unfortunately I can't find it. The documentation talks about httpd.conf but 
this file seems to be absent from my OS X computer, Apple's Find doesn't 
find it.

How do I change the default chmod? I'm a clueless newbie when it comes to 
web server management and my Unix is at the "Una cerveza por favor" level, 
so please be kind and considerate.
