    I have a question with FTP and ISPConfig. I have setup Mandriva 2006 per Howtoforge's Mandriva 2006 setup with ISPConfig. At the end of the setup it specifies that you need to have /var/www as home directory to run CGI scripts. My question is this. When a new FTP account is created its defaulted to be /home/username. However, ISPConfig uses /var/www as the users home directory. Is there anyway I can setup ISPConfig to create new users with /home/username/www/html as their home directory to store their websites, and configure proftp to do the same?

    Thanks in advance

    I think to make the user have FTP access to the home directory is to check the Administrator checkbox. I did have the same problem before but checking the administrator box seems to point it to the domain folder in /var/www.

    Try it and see if that solve the problem

    No, but why do you want that? If this was possible, then you wouldn't be able to upload your HTML files, etc. to the web folder...
