Manually creating default virtual directories for users can be an unfavorable task, especially when you have a large number of users to create virtual directories for.
Thankfully, Cerberus FTP Server has the functionality to automate the process of creating virtual directories for users when they log in. When setup correctly, the first time a native account user logs in to their account, a home or root directory will be created based off of their username.
Creating a Default Virtual Directory:
Use this two step walk-through example of how to create a default virtual directory for native users.
Step One: Create a Group and Virtual Directory
On the Groups page of the User Manager, create a group. For this example, the group will be named "Users", however, it can be named whatever you would like.
Now, add a New Virtual Directory by clicking on the New Virtual Directory... button in the middle of the Groups page of the User Manager.
This new directory will map to c:\ftproot\users\%USER% (We will name this directory "home", however, you can name the directory whatever you would like).
If added successfully, you will see the folder below reflecting the path you assigned. Click Save.
Step Two: Assign The Group to Account Request Users
Account Request Users must be assigned to this group during the approval process. To assign the Account Request User to the group, you will need to select Acct Requests in the User Manager. Inside the Acct Requests page of the User Manager under New User Details there is a drop down box for "Group". Use the drop down box to select the group you created. Click the "Approve" button to accept the new user. Then click "Save".
Once you have accepted the account request, you can verify that the users default virtual directory was setup correctly by returning to the Users page of the User Manager. You should now see your newly created user and the virtual directory folder and path.
