Hello,

The conversion to EasyApache 4 should not modify file permissions to 0664 or directory permissions to 0775. Could you provide an example of a file or directory path that was modified?

Thank you.

Hello, I ran into a similar issue to this recently and it took me awhile to identify what is going on. I am not sure that this is the same issue you had but the problem i had and more may also have is that:
By default EasyApache4 turns on FileProtect The EasyApache 4 FileProtect Option - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation
Which sets permissions for directories in public_html to 0750 (not exactly what you are seeing) so that only the owning user, root, and apache can view its contents.

When you disable this feature it sets all directories to 0755. It runs anytime there is a package update making it harder to troubleshoot as the times are random.

Again this is only what i had been seeing on my own setup and i am posting it so that users are aware its a thing and to look at that option just in case.
