This is directory (files) contains site files. All account directories are given relatively to this directory and can't contain parent directory reference. Hotline allows you to create links (this feature is perhaps not available in your version), none of them can go outside this directory. Only someone logged in using an unix account can create links (symbolic or not) to go outside this directory. Inside this directory, you can manage your site has you want. A good idea if you plan to use account root directory features is to create one directory per account and symbolically link directories you want to make available for this account inside its directory.
Note abount symbolic links: If the destination of a symbolic link is in the HSX scope (inside files), HSX follows it but if it is outside HSX scope (outside files directory) and if HSX is not configured to allow this (this is the default status), symbolic link is not followed. Using HSX configuration manager GHX plugin, you can give a set of legal directories so files directory always works but other directories can also be reachable.
The account name is mandatory. It defines which account matchs the pattern. This value is the login used by users, not their nickname.
IP mask is optionnal. The IP mask is divided into 4 fields. Each field can contain a number between 0 and 255 or a '*'. When HSX checks IP, all value are compared and must be equal to the corresponding IP part, '*' means any value (see example at the end of this page).
Pattern lines are used in the line order. When HSX finds a matching line, it stops its research.
The number of line is not limited. The file can contain no pattern.
Warning: This file can be changed by user ... who can upload a file with the same name. This feature allows any allowed user to modify upload right. To disable this, just do a chmod 0444 .upload in the directory, then no one can change the file.
