I haven't looked at the installer as I am using 4.7, but I assumed (perhaps

of "Drupal can create some useful directories for you. The Files directory
is required while the Themes and Modules directories are only needed if you
have multiple sites and would like different themes and modules on each
site. You can change the location of these directories by clicking the
[change] link. If you are unsure what to do, leave them at the defaults and
continue." I suggest files be defaulted to create and the other two default
I was a beginner just a year ago and I remember it well. Something like this
would have saved me a lot of headaches.
