Maybe I am missing something with users/clients creation

    I create a web site for client foo. Then I create a user for it. E.g. admin

    I want is the user when they login, to default to /var/www/ instead of /var/www/clientN/webN

    I guess that could be done using .bashrc (which I still can't figure out where to put it and then would modify it for each client.)

    I would also like that they dont have to remember names like clientN and webN

    For example all the permissions on the files show as clientN and webN

    These numbers are hard to remember and can lead to mistakes especially by administrators. Are there steps on how to do this?

    I have been using cpanel/WHM and when one creates an account you just specify the IDs of the client and users. Then all directories created are based on these mnemonic IDs.

    Thank you.

    Users have neither to remember the path nor the webID or ClientID names, as a user dont sees the path when it is jailed and all files created by this user are owned by the right user and group automatically.
