Directory cannot be selected as Document root

Directory cannot be selected as document root

If a dialog box with the text “The chosen user does not have executable rights for the selected folder!” appears when you select a directory, you probably have selected “Unix users” in the “Run servers as” section of Settings > Ports & Users and are trying to select a subdirectory of your user folder.

Change the value of the select box to “User USERNAME”. Save the changes by clicking the “Save” button and then select the desired directory for the host’s document root.
