Winbox Directory Structure


H-Sphere Winbox installation creates three major directories and a range of sub-directories:

|--- HSphere
|          |-
|--- HShome
|            |-
|--- HSlogfiles
|              |-

H-Sphere directory (usually C:\HSphere) includes system files:

bin - H-Sphere binary files ;
ftproot - new ftp root for the default FTP site;
logs - H-Sphere log files that can be found in the hsdir\logs directory. (hsdir is the directory where H-Sphere is installed, e.g: C:\HSphere);
scripts - H-Sphere asp scripts files and configuration file (;
skeleton - skeletons for websites and third party products;
stats - service directory for stats process;
wawrapper - service for wawrapper process.

Also the "cfg" virtual directory is created on the web site which was selected as an H-Sphere website during the installation. This directory points to the "scripts" physical directory. Note: Please don't change the "cfg" directory configuration. If any anything is changed, corresponding config parameters must be updated in the file, and H-Sphere service HSSvc must be restarted.

For proper work, H-Sphere needs several parameters listed in the H-Sphere configuration file hsdir\scripts\, such as:
- NetBios machine name ("domainName" variable);
- network adapter MAC address ("addressMAC" variable);
- users' home directory ("usersHome" variable);
- HTTP and FTP logs directory ("logPath" variable);
- MSSQL server name, login, password, etc.

HShome directory contains all user homes

They are located in one place such as <drive>:\hshome. Each home directory has account owner's name. A typical user home has the following directories:


Each domain directory has content similar to the following:


logs directory would have subdirectories for each domain: - (log files in exYYMMDDHH.log W3SVC format) - (-//-)
... - (-//-)

Note that cgi-bin is not a required directory in the site structure and depends on whether the cgi directory resource is enabled for the site. The same is true of log files for individual sites, since H-Sphere has the transfer log resource that allows users to access log files for their site(s).

HSlogfiles directory includes HTTP and FTP logs for all users.

It is a common directory which is located aside from log directories in user homes. Typically, it is located in the disk root directory (<drive>:\hslogfiles) and has the following content structure:

  |-www     (HTTP logs)
  |   |--- W3SVC1 - (log files for 1 site in exYYMMDDHH.log W3SVC format)
  |   |--- W3SVC2 - (-//-)
  |   :
  |   --- W3SVCn - (-//-)
  -ftp     (FTP logs)
      |--- MSFTPSVC1 - (log files for 1 site in exYYMMDDHH.log W3SVC format)
      |--- MSFTPSVC2 - (-//-)
      --- MSFTPSVCn - (-//-)
