No. To explain... when you install YOU creat the data directory and subdirectories 1 and 2. YOU own them. The webserver is running as a different user... i.e. the webserver is not you. Therefore the webserver does not own the data directory and it's subdirectorie. By CHMODing them to 777 you're granting permission for any user on the server, including the webserver, to write to those directories. Once this permission is granted then the webserver can create subdirectories. Because it creates those directories itself then it can write to them. You'll find that you CAN'T write to them because you don't own them.
Does that make sense?
