I`m writting now a small CGI application. The work is almost complete, but still i have to make my little cgi program to call a VB or JS Script, which will create a Virtual directory on my FTP Server (like the one called mkwebdir.vbs). How can i write this script?
Please help me...

P.S. Sorry for my English...

This is only a partial answer...  Check out the registry under "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSFTPSVC\Parameters\Virtual Roots".  That's where MSFTP stores some of it's info.

Have your CGI program update the registry.  I don't know how to get the FTP service to reload the data short of stopping and starting it - that's probably a bit drastic though!!!!!

PS. I'll bet your English is better than my Russian.

I would check the registry also.  It's like on of those mysteries I can't solve, access to the NT user database.  Hopefully things will get easier in NT5 (HA!)

good luck!
