ISPConfig question

I am running Mandriva 2006 with ISPConfig setup. When I add new users to host it sets them up with a /home/username home directory. This is what I want. However, I have to add virtualy hosts in my httpd.conf file everytime this occurs. I thought there was a way so that you can setup the documentroot of apache to be defaulted to home/username/www/ but it seems the only way is to set up virual hosts each time. Does anyone have any insight on whether you can globally setup new accounts' document root to be /home/username/www? Thanks in advance.

I haven't used ISPConfig but Apache supports user home-pages with the UserDir directive - typically the public_html directory in their home directory, but this is configurable. It might be useful to look at the docs at

Thanks for your reply. I did see that walkthrough when I was searching for answers regarding my question. That was a solution, however when you create new users with ISPConfig it defaults them to store websites at /var/www/ but defaults their ftp to /home/username. I can solve this with editing config files but that would be a pain when adding users. Just seeing if there was a way to globally set up so that ISPConfig creates new users with /home/username and ftp account locked into /home/username. Thanks for the quick response.
