Default ftp login is to below web server root

This is the problem: I create a new user called test2, and create a website for test2.com. I create a webuser login called test2user. When I log in using the webftp or a separate ftp program as tes2user, it takes me to


I upload a file to /home/www/web20/user/test2user/web/ then when I open a browser to look at test2.com I see the default index page.

And it is easy to see why: if I look in /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf

the relevant part of the file says:

ServerName www.test2.com:80
ServerAdmin webmaster@test2.com
DocumentRoot /home/www/web20/web

This means that the directory being set up for the user is lower down the path than the webroot; the user can't put files into webroot.

I followed the Debian 3.1 perfect setup, and I'm running v2.1.0

What do I change to make it fit together?

You have to check the "Administrator" checkbox in the settings of the user test2user.

Thanks. That sorted it out. I hadn't worked out why each user has a subdirectory called web.

I now realise that it is so that each user can have their own web space with the url


If that's in the documentation, I missed it!
