    I have a fresh new installation of ISPCONFIG on a Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS
    I am having a problem assigning directory to user.
    ISP propose a path. If I try to change it, he should create the path, I suppose.
    The default path proposed is:

    I add a level to that path assigning:

    But it isn't happening what I suppose.

    Infact when I try to login I have that out:
    Risposta: 220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
    Risposta: 220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
    Risposta: 220-Local time is now 17:01. Server port: 21.
    Risposta: 220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
    Risposta: 220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
    Risposta: 220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
    Comando: USER blabla
    Risposta: 331 User blabla OK. Password required
    Comando: PASS ****
    Risposta: 421 Home directory not available - aborting
    Errore: Impossibile collegarsi al server

    Someone is having the same trouble, or does exist some trik?

    Thanks to all

    little addon!

    Is it possible that directory creation happen only in /var/www/clients/[clientname]/[sitename]/private/

    FTP user home directories are only allowed inside the document root.
    This is /var/www/clients/clientX/webY at default.

    At website security settings HIGH (server config) this path is protected via chattr +i so a directory directly inside this directory level cannot be created.
    They can only be created inside a subdirectory like private or web or cgi-bin.

    This is a bug that is fixed in the next version (
