Default Migration - change web root from /web to /htdocs


This might be a silly question, but I'l looking to moving some sites to being managed with ispconfig.

These sites are not owned by me so I must replicate all database users/passwords and directory paths (or they break).

I need to change the default web root from /some/path/web to /some/path/htdocs

That is... web root must be in a directory called "htdocs" and not "web".

I can change all path with ispconfig, except the final "web" dir.

How do I change that final part (?) It's ok to mod a module (but which one?)

Edit: Being a little impatient, I did some grepping in ispconfig and so far I seem to have found that the relevant paths are hard-coded in and

For example here we have:

Perhaps this thread needs moving in "Development" now. I'm willing to add the patch to change the fixed /web to a variable /$WEB_DIR

Falko: can I proceed?
