Installed the lamp server through Yast using this guide , so far good, it works fine, PHP works, apache works, but ..

I go to install Joomla and i get errors regarding permissions to write to directories denied.
seems i have to manually change each folder's permissions to have Joomla work properly.
I dont have to do this using my other servers that are hosted.

is there a way to get the yast http server to set permissions for Joomla to work proper?
