I recently installed Search Engine on one of my web sites and after a successful installation, the next time I went to log in, I had a problem. I found that the file permissions had changed and I wasn't able to change them or delete the files etc. without intervention from my web host.

Today I installed News Manager on another web site (hosted by the same company) and the permissions have mysteriously changed again and I can't change them back again. I'm getting a 550 error.

Each time, it seems to affect the files in the data directory. Can anyone throw any light on what's happening? I've been using this host for several years and have installed other interactivetools software on their servers in the past without this sort of problem.
