Two important questions:
- What is the function of the folders xoops_data and xoops_lib ?
- Why those two folders must stay out of the root?

This is the place where temporary/cache files are kept. Such files are generated when a page is viewed.

This contains the guts of the Protector module and is kept away from the rest of the module for security. It is the same thing (to all intents and purposes) as the "trust path" folder used by many of GIJoe's modules.

More secure out of document root - less easily "got at" by naughty people.

Actually, "must" is too strong a word as XOOPS will work with the folders inside document root. It is more desirable for them to be out of doc root, though, so if you can then you should.
