FTP user problem


#1

I’ve created a user that I want to have access to only one of my domains. But when I change the “All CGI should run as user” field to that user, the whole site disappears (i.e. you get the “parent directory” page and no files are listed on it). Not only that, logging on as the new user after changing this, I still can’t see the site content in my FTP program.

Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

Oh, you are doing everything right so far.

When you change the CGI user, you are also changing the location of where the files should go.
You’re seeing the directory listing because the web server is looking for the files in the new location, but you haven’t copied them from the old location yet.

So you have to download them from the previous user, and upload them to the new user. Simple as that.
