Use [https://panel.dreamhost.com/?tree=domain.mapsubdir "Domains > Remap Sub-Dir"] to make a sub-directory of your domain use a non-standard location in your file system its source for web content.

Normally if you have <blockquote>'''http://www.domain.com/''' set up with the web directory '''/home/user/domain.com''' </blockquote> then <blockquote>'''http://www.domain.com/pictures/''' would get its content from '''/home/user/domain.com/pictures''' automatically. </blockquote> This area allows you to override this default setting and use any folder you'd like to provide content for sub-directories of your domain. It's great for sharing your domain among multiple ftp users.
+
 
+
Now you could have: <blockquote>'''http://www.domain.com/pictures/''' get its content from '''/home/otheruser/images''' </blockquote> Be warned, CGI scripts won't work in sub-directories remapped to other user's home directories because of file ownership issues.
+
 
+
Note also that PHP scripts in remapped sub-directories - within your own home directory - can only run with the server's default PHP version, which is presently PHP 4.4.2. Software that requires PHP 5 cannot run in a remapped directory.

Also, you can't use this area to change the web directory for an '''entire''' domain! To do that, just go to the "edit" link at [https://panel.dreamhost.com/?tree=domain.web "Domains &gt; Web"].
