The access rights for the directory .../phtml/ must not be changed for security reasons! The rights are reset regularly!

Directory 'data'

The directory 'data' is created with special rights when activating phtml and should not be deleted by the user.

The rights for the directory /import/phtml//data are changed in a way that apart from the user only the user wasecgi, under whose rights the web server runs, can write in the directory 'data' and create files which are created with his own scripts.
