    Hi there,

    I'm having a really obnoxious problem. Every time that I change the home folder of a user (For FTP so that they can upload) within a few days ISPConfig changes it back to the ISPConfig directory.

    What can I do to fix this?

    Sorry to bring this post back, but that doesn't seem to work. Is there a way to stop ISPConfig from editing the users home directories?

    No, as you can not change the home directory of users created by ISPConfig manually.

    So would it work if I created a user through adduser (the command line way)?

    Yes, only users created trough ISPConfig will be changed by ISPConfig.

    Make sure you use a UID below 10000 as ISPConfig uses UIDs >= 10000 for its users!
