    Hi

    The problem I'm facing is that allot of my users are confused about the FTP root directory, when they connect to the server they end up in /usr/home/{user}/

    It is not obvious to them that the files need to go into the public_html dir, and worse still is that many users just delete the mail and public_html dir before uploading the files.

    I want users to end up in /usr/home/{user}/public_html/

    And preferably an easy way to update the current users, the server on which these problems are most frequent has over 650 accounts now.

    Perhaps this could be solved in the FTP server configuration, but I was hoping there would be a good way to do this in cPanel.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I am facing the same problem. Some users will login for the first time and delete all files from their FTP root thinking they are default files that they do not want on their website.

    I would also like to fix this. I was thinking to do either
    a) Change de fault FTP root to ~user/public_html
    b) Modify the permissions of the files & folders under ~user so they cannot delete them.

    Any ideas?
