    I just migated servers and switched from Ensim to Virtualmin, popped for a $200 license fee. I am having a lot of trouble understanding the Virtualmin documentation, there are no screens and obviously my level of understanding is inadequate. Anyone familiar with Virtualmin and creating a user who can FTP to his and only his subfolder (and not up to the public_html directory) ??

    I can create users, but cannot determine the URL to access the index page in their folder. www.domain.tld/user/ ?

    This was really easy with Ensim. :confused:

    I'm not familiar with Virtualmin, but did you take a look at the Apache configuration? That should give you a hint how you can access the user directories.

    Thanks, Falko, but I will admit that I wouldn't really know how to read my Apache configuration.

    However, trial and error may have come through again. For any other noobs who come staggering this way,

    Virtualmin:
    get the desired domain in the dropdown list
    >Edit Mail and FTP,
    >Add a user to this server.
    >Add username and password,
    >In Quota and home directory settings, Home Directory, check the "Subdirectory of server's home": public_html/user1 ;in this case, folder is named "public_html/user1"

    FTP:
    hostname: domain.com
    Username: user1.domain
    password: xxxxxxx

    In web browser: http://www.domain.com/user1/

    Simple, just took a while to get the right combination of settings.

    I think there's some kind of Alias line for the user pages.
