    Hi,

    How do I setup an FTP account that goes to outside of the public_html directory.

    Example: I want the customer's FTP directory to be here

    /home/myaccount/customers/customer01/

    Insteaf of here

    /home/myaccount/public_html/customer01/

    Thanks,
    Jamie

    Go on, have a guess
    If you're using proftpd you should be able to edit /etc/proftpd/passwd.vhosts adn change the login path for the username in that file.

    Then stop and start proftpd.

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I have a customer who wants to do exactly this kind of thing. Ideally I want to give them a way to do it themselves from cPanel - any ideas?
