    Is it possible to change ispconfig user web1_bruma home directory?

    I change path in /etc/passwd but, path gets updated back to original after changing settings in ispconfig.

    What I'm trying to do is, to use same account for user bruma (/home/bruma) and web1_bruma (/var/www/web1/user/web1_bruma, bruma has home in /home where is much more space.

    You'd have to change the ISPConfig scripts which means your changes would apply to all users.

    You can try to use a symlink from /var/www/web1/user/web1_bruma to /home/bruma.

    /root/ispconfig/scripts/lib/config.lib.php, be aware that may other functions rely on the place of the user homedir and you might have to change other files too.
