Default Where is my home directory?

I've just completed installation on my new ispconfig server running Ubuntu (breezy badger) with the tutorial on this site and have setup a reseller account, client account, and new website. I created the user web1_sam and can FTP in just fine. What I haven't figured out yet is how to access the home page of that user without changing the DNS over yet. I've tried www.mysite.com/~web1_sam and www.mysite.com/users/sam but on each I get "Object not found" like I just made up the address. I've also tried some other address locations, but I just can't figure out how to access the site. I've also tried just using the name without the "web1_". Any suggestions? Thanks!

So if you do not have assigned your servers IP to the Web's DNS Name, just enter this in your hostfile.
E.g. on Windows XP it is in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\drivers\etc\hosts

Just enter the servers IP beside the DNS-Name.

The server does resolve just fine. I can use either the IP or the domain name and it does go to the server. I can go to mysite.com:81 and login without any issues. Can you think of what else may be wrong?

I guess you could add a subdomain to your DNS and route it to the new server.
In ISPConfig you then just add a Co-Domain with the subdomain value in the Host field.

Never tested this.

This works fine.

If you use www.mysite.com in your browser, then the main domain OR a CO-Domain must be www.mysite.com in ISPConfig. If you use mysite.com (without www) in your browser, then either the main domain OR a Co-Domain must be mysite.com (without www).

Thank you for the suggestions, however I'm still not able to see any user pages. I haven't tried to point other domains because I can't see their pages via the www.mysite.com/~web1_user to test out the look. I've looked into the directory structure and made sure the users were right. So far, I've tried www.mysite.com/~web1_user, mysite.com/~web1_user, 209.121.XXX.XX/~web1_user, 192.168.0.15/~web1_user, and all alternations of tring to locate the user directory (/users/web1, /users/web1_user, /users/web/web1_user).

Does anyone out there know if I need to make certain directories public or if I can check if that's getting done. Whatever address I put in, I get the "object can't be found" like I typed in the wrong address. Everything else (server, ftp, etc) is working perfect.

Dues this URL works for you:

www.mysite.com/users/web1_user

The user web directory is:

/var/www/web1/user/web1_user/web/

I tried www.mysite.com/users/web1_user and I get the same result (no object found). I did look at the directory structure and the users look correct and in the right place with the right spelling.

And you are sure that you get the correct content of the main website from the correct server if you open www.mysite.com in the browser?
