Adding directories to the root

    Hi - So you all know I am totally new to administering hosting so I need help.

    My developer wants to add his own directories to the list of 10 default directories within the filemanager. Even as the administrator I cannot add directories here. Plesk instruction PDF's say that for security reasons I can't anyway. This is fine but why is the developer of my new web site going mad because he can't make his own directories? Does he need to? Why can't he just upload directories into the httpdocs or httpsdocs directories? Why has he not built the site on his own server, tested it so it works and then just uploaded it to my server with his ftp login I created for him?

    These are the languages the developer is using - FTP, PHP, Sheduled tasks .NET, ASP, MSSQL.

    First of all you must be aware that your developer should not create any folders to root enviornment, no matter in which hosting enviornment you are working.

    In Plesk enviornment you are allowed to work in htppdocs folder only. So your developer should create folders insdide httpdocs only.

    What he will need to do is, if he want to create dynamic folders using script then he must allow write permisions first to a folder in which he will create dynamic files or fodlers. If the containing folder does not have write permisons then he cannot create folders using script.

    Please note that it is not recommended to allow write permisions on httpdocs folder. Your developer must create an subfolder under httpdocs and then allow write permisions on it.
