Changing a Site's Root Folder

The Site root folder is specified when you create a new Site; however, you can later change a Site’s root folder.

If you change a Site's root folder, all previously configured user and Group folder permissions related to that Site are deleted. You will have to redefine the permissions.

To change the Site root folder

  1. In the administration interface, connect to EFT and click the Server tab.

  2. On the Server tab, click the Site you want to configure.

  3. In the right pane, click the General tab.

  4. Next to the Site root folder box, click the folder icon  to specify a new Site root folder. (The path must be a physical folder, not a virtual folder; using the folder icon to browse for a path is recommended over typing the path.)

  5. Click Apply to save the changes on EFT.

Because of a limitation of the HTTP protocol, when a connection is established using HTTP, the client (e.g., a Web browser) shows the root folder, not the user's home folder.
