Symbolic link to the user's htdocs folder
Hi

I just set up a ispCP panel on my ubuntu server, and everything works as intended. I have some experience with directadmin and there it's possible to access your htdocs folder through the server's ip address. Say that i have the server ip address 82.125.5.211 and i (or my customer) want(s) to access a domain's webspace that doesn't have a domain name pointing at it (eg: due to a new domain or a domain name transfer, it's really useful if you want to debug the website after a server move).

Wouldn't it be useful that you could access his folder then? Making a symbolic link when you create a new user could solve this problem. (like http://82.125.5.211/~username.com). This way, the domain is reachable with http://82.125.5.211/~username.com and also http://www.username.com.

Sincerely

Tom

RE: Symbolic link to the user's htdocs folder
Id' rather put a domain alias to the customers domain - customer.myhostingdomain.tld

the thing with ~customer is ok for static sites but there are sometimes problems if you try to us a big CMS on this URL...

But: the domain alias cannot point to / - or maybe it's fixed now???
