Default Global FTP?

Hi all :-)

I recently installed ISPconfig on my new VPS. One thing confuses me when I compare this with my previous hosting (a regular webhosting).

I can't find something like a "global FTP connection" - a connection that would allow you to edit ANY site.

My directory structure looks like this:
Code:
/var/www/clients/client0/web1
/var/www/clients/client0/web2
/var/www/clients/client0/web3
Is it possible to create a connection you can use to edit contents of any of web1/web2/web3?

I created a FTP user that has /var/www/clients/client0/ as a root directory - but I can still edit only the subfolder it's connected to.
I can view edit ONLY web1, I see the web2, web3 structure but there are no files and I can't upload anything there :-(

By the way, I don't really like the naming. Is it possible to get rid of web1, web2, web3... and rename it to e.g. domain1.com, domain2.com, domain3.com?

Thumbs up

Hi all, I guess I solved the problem (sort of :-))

So in case you need something like a "global FTP" for you VPS probably the best thing you can do is to use SCP connection using a program like WinSCP (it's very similar to FTP).

You need to log in as a root user (this was sent to be by the provider and I guess you can't add root in ISPconfig but again I may be wrong).

I hope this helps some other people

No, as this would cause your sites to fail as soon as you change a domain name. The system adds symlinks for esay shall navigation so that you can access all sites by domain name like:

cd /var/www/www.domain.tld/
