Default Gutsy Gibbon Perfect Server - Vhosts and Proftpd


I have a couple specific questions about some non-standard (to ISPC) configs.

I wanted PROFTPD's root to be /

I also wanted Apache's Root to be /home/

For PROFTPD, I was able to achieve this by editing the proftpd_ispconfig.conf file at the top where it says:

DefaultAddress 127.x.x.x

I reset that line to: (my LAN IP to the server)

That, and setting the proftpd.conf ServerRoot to "/" is letting me log in with the appropriate user and access the entire server with ftp.

The problem is that the proftpd_ispconfig.conf file is overwritten every time I make an edit in the ISPconfig admin. Is there a way to set that localhost address in the ISPconfig admin to the 10.x.x.x number?

My second problem is with the Vhosts_ispconfig.conf file in ..apache2>Vhosts>

I want the document root of the main server to be /home (instead of the default (I think /var/www/web2/www/). So I found I can change the top lines of this file to (DocumentRoot /home):

ServerName localhost
ServerAdmin <myemail>
DocumentRoot /home

Which works just fine. Now the apache root is /home/ just like I want it. However, the same thing above... when I change a site in the ISPconfig admin, it reverts this file to it's default, and I can't seem to figure out how to change this info in the ISPConfig admin to reflect what I need (as in above).

Thanks for the help!

You can not use ISPConfig with a different folder layout.

Get ISPConfig support and the ISPConfig 3 manual from ispconfig.org.
