    I've had several clients complain about dreamweaver's file sync not working...

    The problem is a permission problem...

    My solution: (from the shell)

    $ cd /home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com
    $ mkdir dreamweaver
    $ cd dreamweaver
    $ ln -s ../cgi-bin
    $ ln -s ../error_docs
    $ ln -s ../httpdocs
    $ ln -s ../httpsdocs
    $ ln -s ../private
    $ cd ..
    $ chown -R user dreamweaver

    Then all that's left is to inform the user to use "dreamweaver/" as their starting host directory.

    Everyone seems to be happy as the solution also allows them to store their dreamweaver related templates/libraries, notes, etc.

    If somebody could please help...
    - How do I make plesk do this for me?
    . (Skeleton directory somewhere?)

    Anyways, hope this helps someone...

    Sorry, just read your *entire* post, last time I glanced and saw you wanted info on skeleton.

    Probably the best way to do what you want is to put your commands into a script and have it execute from the Plesk Event Manager, triggered on "Physical Hosting Created", this way, each time a new domain's Hosting is created (directories and such), your script would then run and create the additional dirs and set the perms/ownership, etc.

    The skeleton feature is a bit limited, looks like you want to create the dreamweaver dir at the domain root, not within httpdocs, and I don't believe there is any way to do the owner/perms from skel. I agree the doc's are too sparse.

    Event Manager docs:
    http://download1.sw-soft.com/Plesk/Plesk7.5/Doc/plesk-7.5r-admins-guide-html/ch02s26.html

    I apologize for not having paid more attention to the entire post the first time around.

    awesome, james. i didn't even know about the event manager. this actually allows me to fix several problems i've been having lately, such as chmod a new web_user directory so that my client can upload files to a new ftp user acct created for her clients. outstanding!
