    I saw in the svn log that the default home for vmail moved from /home/vmail to /var/vmail

    Reading this thread I was wondering if I should move the home following the steps.

    Would there be a problem in future if I leave it in /home/vmail ?
    Would there be benefits if I move it to /var/vmail ?

    Only the default was changed. Existing installations should not be affected.

    i installed ispconfig on a clean ubuntu system and thought ispc3 would use /var/vmail/ as default for the mailboxes. I had to change some paths from /home/vmail to /var/vmail in and other scripts and files after installation.

    I thought i use /var/vmail to get no problems in the future but now i have problems every time i update ispc3 from svn because the paths are set to /home/vmail in the config-files ...

    Can i update the paths in the svn install dir or is this not wanted?

    I thought I changed that already. You can change that in the config files in SVN.
