 I cannot create a folder in my base directory
Solution By default, you cannot create a new folder in your home directory. Your home directory is the folder containing your 'httpdocs' and 'httpsdocs' folders and cannot be viewed by the public. If you try to create a folder in your home directory you will see an error similar to the one below:

Unable to create directory /folder: filemng failed: mkdir: cannot create directory `/var/www/vhosts/yourdomain.com/folder': Permission denied
filemng: Error occured during /bin/mkdir command.

You may create as many folders as you wish in the 'httpdocs' and 'httpsdocs' directories.
