Default ISPConfig overwrites proftpd virtual hosting edits

I have made the follwing entry to the proftpd_ispconfig.conf file:

<VirtualHost xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx>
DefaultRoot /var/www/web1/web/freebies/newsletter
AllowOverwrite on
Umask 002
</VirtualHost>

where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the actual dedicated IP address. ISPConfig routinely overwrites this statement and replaces the DefaultRoot with ~ which locks the user in their own folder.

How can i get ISPConfig to stop overwriting the above entry?

You can not stop this without changing the ISPConfig code that egnerates the proftpd config files.

Is there any other way to use the virtual hosts function without changing the ISPConfig code? I know that in some of the ISPConfig files there is a place you can make manual entries that ISPConfig will not change. Is that possible in this situation?

No, this function is not implemented for the proftpd virtual hosts. If you dont use anonymous FTP on your server, you do not need the proftpd_ispconfig.conf file. Just comment out the include in the proftpd.conf file and configure your default root in proftpd.conf

It was a mistake...I tried to delete the post in the General Forum where it was put by accident, but I was unable to delete it.
