    When creating an FTP account for a user it automatically makes a directory with that FTP username in the public_html and the FTP user can only access and upload files inside there.

    Is there a way to make these FTP accounts create folders inside another folder?

    For example, if I were to create the user, &john_doe& for a FTP account and the domain was &domain.com&, it would create domain.com/john_doe. Is there a way to place that folder within another folder? domain.com/012/john_doe?

    Woah, wait . . .

    The newest version let's you put it into it's own folder?

    Or it doesn't allow you to?

    Am I able to make a FTP account and have it be something like, domain.com/012/john_doe?

    Thanks!

    I'm using Cpanel 5.3.0 R117 w/ Xskin 1.5.

    In the FTP Manager -& FTP Accounts -& Add accounts, you'll see these:

    Login: &input box&
    Password: &input box&
    Directory: /home/user/public_html/ &input box&

    You can just type &john_doe& for Login and &012/john_doe& for the Directory.
