    How can I change the FTP login directory for FTP subaccounts? Seems like I can only change password, but not the login directory that they login with.

    Ideas?
    Thanks in advance! :)

    Go on, have a guess
    You can probably do this be editing the files in:
    /etc/proftpd/

    Especially passwd.vhosts

    You have to edit them through an SSH session, not ftp.
