    I'm testing and trying ISPConfig

    I created a client and a site.
    Now I'm trying to play around.
    FTP works fine. I can upload files to the site.
    However, when I ssh to the server and try to close a file with vim I get:
    E138: Can't write viminfo file /var/www/clients/client1/web2/.viminfo!

    Looks like a permission problem.

    Of course I get this error:
    drwxr-xr-x 13 root root 4096 apr 7 23:08 web2

    But all I tried was to setup a simple site for a testclient. He shouldn't get any errors, right?

    Anyway, that client can even see the complete server:
    $ cd /
    $ ls
    $ cd /var/www
    $ ls


    I guess I have to learn quite a lot. ISPConfig 3 looks like a nice but complicated piece of software.

    You missed to enable jailkit for the user.

    Rather than start a new thread, I found this one describing my problem exactly. I hope I behaved correctly.

    I created site, I created FTP user and uploaded files, I created shell user and after editing and saving a file (using vi), I was greeted with:
    The file is in fact saved as edited, but I get the error message.

    So I searched and found this thread. After logging off, enabling jailkit for the shell user in ISPCONFIG interface, and then logging in again, I see nothing when performing "ls". Therefore, I disable jailkit for the user, and after logging in again the user can see and edit the files again, but again with the error message.

    What does this mean? Can I "fix" things so the shell user doesn't get this warning?

    Thank you,
