CMS Installation, FileZilla & ISPConfig: /var/www/html versus /var/www/clients/client0/web1/web
I am trying to install Drupal via FTP with Filezilla.
I logged in as an FTP user. The file was transferred into /var/www/clients/client0/web1/web
I moved the files out of the Drupal folder directly into web and deleted the Drupal folder.
Per Till at ISPConfig:
“You dont have to configure anything in apache, thats all done by ispconfig already.
Just upload your drupal install by ftp or on the shell to the folder /var/www/clients/client0/web1/web/ (the right folder is /var/www/clients/client0/web1/web ).
A folder /var/www/html is used only on servers that dont use a controlpanel and that dont host more then one site. So this does not apply to your server.
unpack your drupal zip.
upload it to /var/www/clients/client0/web1/web/ (or copy it there on the shell, if you prefer Linux shell commands over GUI dragnDrop programs.”
I loaded my website and still got the apache default page.
I entered “sudo ls” on the command line interface and saw that client0 has two folders:
web1 and mywebsite.co.uk
Both web1 and mywebsite.co.uk have identical folders called web.
I thought perhaps the drupal installation is ftp’d into the web1/web folder and then has to be moved to the mywebsite.co.uk/web folder, but Till says,
“No, thats ok. The installation has to be in web1/web. The path "yourwebsite.co.uk”/web is a symlink, so thats the same folder then web1/web.“
I asked Digital Ocean but Brad said:
