    Hi there,

    I`ve got a question about the location of the users.

    My information:
    Fedora 7 (incl all updates) Perfect server
    ISPConfig 2.2.12 (latest)

    Everything works, ftp / mysql.

    But the problem is can`t find the location of new users, I`ve read the faq and this forum but couldn`t find a solution.

    I`ve also tried this: http://www.howtoforge.com/faq/14_43_en.html but that doesn`t work for me, it just shows a page not found.

    And the other question is: where are the users documents / webfiles saved (which directory)?.


    Thanks in advance!

    Did you try
    Code:
    www.yourdomain.com/~webNR_name
    The place the users (not admin) files are located in is: /var/www/webNR/users/wenNR_user
    (and / or /var/www/domainname/users/webNR_user )

    Yes i have, i`m now looking in the www directory and it indeed shows web1_xxxx web2_xxxx web3_xxxx, but when I try to connect to those accounts (ipadress/~web3_xxxx) it doesn`t work.

    (right now i`m only using this installation local for testing purposes).

    ipadress/~web3_xxxx will not work.

    An option would be to add the IP and domain to the hosts file of the PC that you are using to access the server with.

    This way you are "forcing" the PC to go to that IP when your try to access the domain.

    The location of the hosts file in Windows is c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc
    When you do it this way, make sure that you restart your browser, to make it read the new hosts file.

    Did you add the needed data to the the hosts file of the PC that you are using to access the domain?

    Example shown below is for a Windows system.
    Code:
    IP.OF.SERVER   xyanide.exs 
    IP.OF.SERVER   www.xyanide.exs 
    
    Make sure that you set the IP.OF.SERVER to the LAN IP of the server that ISPconfig is using.

    Yes i have, and when I go to www.xyanide.exs / http://xyanide.exs it shows the "Shared IP" website of ispconfig. But when i try www.xyanide.exs/~web3_xyanide it shows a "page not found".

    Maybe i`ve got to change something in ISP config?

    If you want i can give you my ipaddress and the standard login data for my ISPConfig installation by pm? (so you can have a look at it).

    What IP are you seeing (in ISPconfig) under Management > Settings > IP Address ?
    And ISPmanagement > 'The-domain-that-you-created' > IP Address ?

    Both should be the same, and they should be your LAN IP when you are behind a router.

    re: If you want i can give you my ipaddress and the standard login data for my ISPConfig installation by pm? (so you can have a look at it).

    Sorry. Normally I would help you with this, but at the moment I really do not have time.

    Yes, they both show my lan ip (static: 10.0.0.157).

    You got me on this one.

    You have added to the PC's hosts file (the one that you are using to access ISPconfig with)
    Code:
    10.0.0.157   xyanide.exs 
    10.0.0.157   www.xyanide.exs
    When you try http://www.xyanide.exs or http://xyanide.exs , you are seeing the xyanide.exs site okay.

    When you try to access the users page (with http://www.xyanide.exs/~web3_xyanide ) you get a page not found (404)

    Maybe try adding /index.html or /index.htm, and see if this helps?

    You should see (if you did not delete the user/web3_xyanide/web directory):
    I do not have a server on my LAN, so I can not test this, but theoratically the setup should work (I can not test it)

    Maybe someother ISPconfig usere here can give it a test run?
