Changing folder location. How?

mrlawrencelam 3 years ago updated by Vlad R 2 years ago 7

By default, the superuser's home folder is located inside system/data/ folder. It is important that you change the user's settings (from the FileRun control panel) and set the home folder path pointing to a folder which is located outside the public area of your web server (ie. outside www).


I searched for an hour but could not find any instruction to do this. I also could not find this feature under Superuser's control panel.

I did this and after that I could not upload any files anymore. The error ist:

"File copy failed: CopyFile error: /var/www/temp/phpl0VvYJ could not be copied to /var/filedir/myfile.txt"

how to fix this?

Sounds like the permissions of the folder "/var/filedir/" do not allow PHP to make changes. The recommended action would be to check the folder's permissions and change accordingly.

please help me, for create path.

Many of the control panel fields have a question mark button (?) on the right side. Use it for getting more information. For example, on this particular field you will notice it says "absolute path". Do not use "/../" paths with FileRun, it will only cause you problems.

If you do not know the absolute path of a folder on your server, the best people to ask for help is your hosting service tech support.
