View Full Version : SSH error
7th April 2009, 22:15
I'm testing and trying ISPConfig 18.104.22.168
I created a client and a site.
Now I'm trying to play around.
FTP works fine. I can upload files to the site.
However, when I ssh to the server and try to close a file with vim I get:
E138: Can't write viminfo file /var/www/clients/client1/web2/.viminfo!
Looks like a permission problem.

Of course I get this error:
drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 4096 apr 7 23:08 web2
But all I tried was to setup a simple site for a testclient. He shouldn't get any errors, right?
Anyway, that client can even see the complete server:
$ cd /
$ cd /var/www
I guess I have to learn quite a lot. ISPConfig 3 looks like a nice but complicated piece of software.

You missed to enable jailkit for the user.

Rather than start a new thread, I found this one describing my problem exactly. I hope I behaved correctly.
I created site, I created FTP user and uploaded files, I created shell user and after editing and saving a file (using vi), I was greeted with:
E138: Can't write viminfo file /var/www/clients/client0/web3/.viminfo!
The file is in fact saved as edited, but I get the error message.
So I searched and found this thread. After logging off, enabling jailkit for the shell user in ISPCONFIG interface, and then logging in again, I see nothing when performing "ls". Therefore, I disable jailkit for the user, and after logging in again the user can see and edit the files again, but again with the error message.
What does this mean? Can I "fix" things so the shell user doesn't get this warning?
