It is possible, but perhaps not the best option because _any_ files a user uploads will be immediately accessible via the web. If you did want to do it, check out:
man pw There's a switch you can use to change the default home directory for users created with pw - you can also make it permanent by modifying /etc/pw.conf. Alternatively you could just opt to keep the default home dir as /home and then create symlinks inside joe's home dir: /home/joe/public_html -> /usr/local/apache2/wwwroot/joe However, if you decide to go down that route, consider using /var/ instead of /usr/local/ for your web files since /var is a more logical place to place web files that change often (files that VARy over time). Have a look at: man hier for more info. -- Jez Hancock - System Administrator / PHP Developer http://munk.nu/ _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
