    the clients who try to install mambo or joomla by themselves (not by the application pool) they have great problems cause some of the folder containing modules templates and other, have owner and group apache...so the users who install them cant work with them.

    Why is that happening? is that normal?

    This is because the php upload is started as user apache.

    A workaround could be to upload the zipfiles (modules, components, etc.) through the Filemanager in the customer menu (Plesk) and use the "Install from directory" option. This way the permissions should stay correct.

    Does anyone know how the Filemanager in Plesk takes care of the file ownership?

    In the Mambo/Joomla administration GUI. When you are at the Component/Module install page you have the ability to

    "install from file" --> browse...
    "install from directory" --> /usr/local/psa/home/vhost/customer/......
