    Changeing the primary domains root folder is good as it is a huge security risk for the other domains under that folder.

    That www folder structure is completely wrong.
    It may grant cross access between sites.
    This should have been fixed 10 years ago.

    Hi @Davzarek

    Thanks for the feedback. When you note
    Can you elaborate? Anything under the user, in this case, would be subject to this regardless of the directory structure. If possible and in order to fully understand and address your concern please provide a step-by-step example.


    Thanks!
