I had a crash on my webserver and had to reinstall an update of the Website that was 2 years old (because nothing younger!). The Webserver is on Plesk 8.6 and the Website uses Typo3. Now my problem is simple: before, I had a direct FTP access from every computer to "", that was actually a shortcut for "srv/www/" etc. Now it seems the path doesn't work anymore, and every time I try to connect to "" i only open "", and need to look for the folder then. Does anybody have an idea how to fix the problem?

I don't think this is related to TYPO3? There's a lot of unrelated noise in the question, if you'd ask me... (You might also want to have a look at the preview while editing, or read Success!) – Arjan Jan 12 '10 at 11:48

It really depends on your definition of "crash", if you had to reinstall Plesk from scratch, I do not think that updates. is a default location so you should go in to FTP settings and make sure that the settings are correct.

Yes, but the FTP settings in Plesk are reduced to "Login" and "password". And also the shell access, I don't know if I should change that. Could it be on my 1&1 hosting system? – waszkiewicz Jan 12 '10 at 12:29
