Hi Everyone,

I am looking to add an additional folder for all accounts. I am not sure if this is something I would need to have a plugin of some sort written for if there is simply a directory template that exists that I can add an additional folder root to have files placed.

Thoughts / Advice would be greatly appreciated.

That's incorrect. Let's assume you're logged into WHM as root and want to create an account. On that account, outside the public_html directory you want to create a directory called WorkRoom.

In root/cpanel3-skel/ you see there is public_ftp/ and public_html/ directories. Create a new one here called WorkRoom.

Create a new account and check it for the new WorkRoom directory.

If you're creating accounts in WHM while logged in as a Reseller, create the WorkRoom directory in this location instead:
/home/resellerusername/cpanel3-skel/

Create a new account and check it for the new WorkRoom directory.

I've just tested this and created a dummy account, works fine.

HTH!

Sorry about that Infopro,

I think my original query wasn't as clear as it should have been, I wrote it just before heading to sleep.

I would like to have something like:
/home/myuser/
/additional_folder/myuser/

The main goal is to grant each user access to a partition/folder outside of their user home that we can store files to. Equally the user jailing would need to work within this constraint as we'd want PHP to have access to this folder area.
