Default /web to /htdocs change for web-root (apache/nginx)

Hello,

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.

I did some grepping in ispconfig and so far I seem to have found that the relevant paths are hard-coded in apache2_plugin.inc.php and nginx_plugin.inc

For example here we have:
$app->system->chmod($data['new']['document_root'].'/web';

Falko: can I proceed with a patch? Shall I create a new placeholder defaulting to "web"?

Thank you

This folder is called "web" in ispconfig and we dont plan to chnage it or make it configurable in the nextreleases. Just add a symlink "htdocs" in the web root that points to the "web" folder and your sites should work.

I'am not Falko, but I'am the maintainer of ispconfig.

This is why I asked if it's something you would "like".
