Default Some noob (?) questions...


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 ?

My ProFTPD config:

ServerName			"ProFTPD server"
ServerIdent			on "FTP Server ready."

ServerType			standalone
#ServerType			inetd

# Use this to excude users from the chroot
DefaultRoot			~ !adm

# Use pam to authenticate (default) and be authoritative
AuthPAMConfig			proftpd
AuthOrder			mod_auth_pam.c* mod_auth_unix.c

# Do not perform ident nor DNS lookups (hangs when the port is filtered)

UseReverseDNS			off

# Port 21 is the standard FTP port.

# Umask 022 is a good standard umask to prevent new dirs and files
# from being group and world writable.

# Default to show dot files in directory listings

# This is where we want to put the pid file
ScoreboardFile			/var/run/proftpd.score

# Normally, we want users to do a few things.
  AllowOverwrite		yes

# Define the log formats

netstat -tap:

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.
