Symptoms

Setting up accounts with FTP home directory at /www/htdocs

Resolution

1. Add the email/FTP user account you want to the VDS.
2. Connect to the VDS as VDS owner via telnet or SSH.
3. Go to /ftp/pub and remove the directory with the name of the user.
4. Create a symbolic link to the /www/htdocs from the name of the
email/FTP user account from under the /ftp/pub folder.

For example if you want the email/FTP user account which is named
"webmaster" to have FTP access to /www/htdocs,
please follow these steps:
1. Create under the VDS the email/FTP user account named "webmaster".
2. Connect to the VDS as VDS owner via telnet or SSH.
3. Go to the /ftp/pub folder and remove the "webmaster" folder by:
rm -r webmaster
4. Create the symbolic link by:
ln -s /www/htdocs /ftp/pub/webmaster
