Question Asked: After replacing the oil filter, oil leaks out of the filter. Why?

(not a mechanic) I have changed oil on this vehicle for the past 4.5 years using the same parts and oil brand. For the first time, however, I see that oil leaks out of the oil filter housing unit. All rubber gaskets have been replaced as I always do but for some reason, it seems that the oil is not contained in the oil filter housing unit. I thought it was a bad oil filter so I put in a new one but the results are the same.
