Some background: I been asked to help a guy who is running a Boonex Dolphin site on DigitalOcean with a Virtualmin panel. I'm not happy with the way the panel has been set up, but he had it done by someone he considered an expert. Maybe it's fine and I'm just not used to the complexities.
Earlier today I created a sub directory in Public_Html and installed a clean version of Dolphin. It was working fine, but I got called away before fully testing it. When I returned, I decided to create a new user for myself and tried to create FTP access, which was denied when I tried to access the site. When I went back to the site, I was told by Virtualmin that the Public_Html directory didn't exist. The remainder of Virtualmin operates normally.
It's possible that the person who set up Virtualmin has done something while I was away, because I understand he's still trying to refine it. It's also possible I did something wrong as well. However, during the short time I was trying to gain FTP access, I don't recall doing anything destructive nor did I receive any warnings that a file or directory was about to be deleted. This is the message I get when using File Manager:
Following errors occured while performing operation Error opening directory /home/xxxxxx/public_html No such file or directory
Is there a log where I can consult to see if someone did something to cause the directory to vanish, or can the directory be simply hidden from me? I am accessing the panel as the administrator.
The owner will be devastated because he's paid a lot of money to have the site installed. Fortunately it doesn't have any members and I can rebuild it for him if needs be.
Any help will be appreciated.
