Shared, VPS, Dedicated, and WP Professional packages allow access to the server's files. These files are stored in file directories. You can find an overview of each directory below
Many of the directories described in this article can be accessed via the Account Control Center's File Management section. However, many directories are package specific, so your server's directories may not include all directories listed here.
Visit these articles to learn how to connect to your pair Networks account:
The Home directory is the starting point for your account. The path to the Home directory is /usr/home/USERNAME.
This directory is where FTP, SSH programs, and the Account Control Center (ACC) File Manager will start you. When you log into your account, you will be in your Home directory. From your Home directory, you may see the following directories:
The backup directory uses the path /usr/home/USERNAME/backup. This directory contains any backups that are generated through the ACC, such as MySQL database backups or website backups done through the archive manager.
Web Report Configuration Directory (log_config)
Public HTML Directory (public_html)
The public_html directory is actually a symbolic link (symlink) to your Web directory, which is where you store the files you want to be viewable on the internet. The path is /usr/home/USERNAME/public_html.
A further description of your Web directory is provided in the Web Directory section.
Public SSL Directory (public_ssl)
Public FTP Directory (public_ftp)
The optional public_ftp directory is a symbolic link to /usr/public_ftp/USERNAME, which contains your anonymous FTP area.
Virtual FTP must be enabled via the ACC on one or more of your domain names to see and use this directory.
For Dedicated, VPS, and accounts created before to June 1, 2011, we include a symbolic link in your Home directory called "boxes" that points to /usr/boxes/USERNAME. This directory is where all the email for your virtual mailboxes is stored.
The Web Directory
The Web directory contains any files that the user wants to make available online. All domain names in your account will be mapped to a directory, or subdirectory, under this main Web directory. The Web directory's path is /usr/www/users/USERNAME.
SSL Web Directory
This directory contains any Web files that you want to have available through an SSL connection. This directory will only be visible and available for your account if you have SSL certificates installed.
The inboxes for any of your pair Networks mailboxes use this path: /usr/boxes/main_USERNAME/domain/mailbox_USERNAME
Replace the following snippets from the file path:
|main_USERNAME||pair Networks' username|
|domain||full domain name and extension (example.com)|
|mailbox_USERNAME||username for the mailbox|
The IMAP folder files are located under: /usr/boxes/main_USERNAME/domain/mailbox_USERNAME^/.imap/
The files are named the same as the folders. When attempting to access your IMAP folder files using this path, be sure to include the caret symbol ("^") after your "mailbox_USERNAME."
If you are using the Qmail program, the system generated files can be found at /var/rules/USERNAME.
