    I have created a domain, website, DNS in ISPCONFIG.
    (The domain in question is in the process of transfer and I donot have access the Registrar DNS records for change of name server or A records at the moment)

    I have also tried editing the host file first with WAN IP address then with local LAN address. The default page for the website does open correctly in the browser.

    What I wanted it to build the website for the domain till the domain is transferred to my account.

    But when I try to ftp files to this domain I am getting a 553:permission denied error.

    Any Solution will be really helpful.

    Have you crated a ftp user for that site?

    Yes I did.
    I am able to connect to the domain with that ftp user. The default folder & file for the vhost created is also showing.

    only when I am trying to upload files to the site, I am getting the error.

    I found the reason for the error.
    The web folder is being created with ownership root instead of clientxx and webxx.

    The question now is how how to correct the same and how this error crept in?

    I dont understand you, what do you mean by "how to correct the same?". Did you mean how to change the ownership of that folder?

    Yes, I mean change the ownership of the same.

    I understand that I can change the ownership of the same manually, but what file should I edit so that correct ownership is created when creating new domain & websites instead of the 'root'

    You can change the ownership with "chown -R clientx:webx /pathtoclientdirectory". Regarding the file, I know very little about php programing - ISPConfig developers are more qualified to answer.

    @pawan: I'd suggest you to recreate domain from scratch.

    But, I'm wondering if there is some symlink or better to say how to create a symlink for a domain that is not active/propagated on Internet.

    So for example I've created page that doesn't resolve yet but I want to preview page. My ispconfig domain is (example) and I want to access previews:

    Best way to do it for all domains?
