Default Question about web/ folder permissions

I have a problem with self installing php software: generally, PHP runs under the www-data user, but the files uploaded by users are owned by webN.clientN, and writing/directory creation is not enabled for others, so the self-installing scripts (that create files and folders) fail... unless I manually chmod 777 to the web folder, which stinks from far away as a security hole.

Is there a way to setup ISPConfig to:
- have the correct permissions in place so www-data can write/create folders without root intervention
- at the same time not expose the files to all other users on the system?
