Some noob (?) questions...
Hi ;)

Recently installed ISPConfig following the fantastic perfect CentOS Setup.

Everything is working smoothly, but i have some problems:

1.- I can access ftp with my normal users, but NOT with ISPConfig users; AKA the webX_user and his/her password, trough the web interface or ftp clients. (Gives error on both right and left side). FTP access is granted when creating the website.

2.- After i did the entire installation ... i did remember that i made a little mistake: users should have their home in /home/www... and NOT in /var/www/...

Ok, no problem i said; deleted all users from ISPConfig, changed the apache conf, rebooted the machine (just in case), maded a new user in ISPConfig, and surprise: when i go to the website, instead of saying:

"You may now add content to the directory /home/www/html/. Note that until blablabla"

it says: "You may now add content to the directory /var/www/html/. Note that until blablabla"

Is there any way of changing this during post-installation or should i better reinstall ?

Please check that the users created by ISPConfig have the correct homedir in /etc/passwd.
You should also check if all paths are correct in the isp_server table in the ISPConfig database.
