I am having trouble creating an FTP account for a sub folder off Public_Html. When I enter login name the directory text box is automatically populated with
Public_Html/our_ domain_name/login_name. When I click create the account is created and a folder is created with the name of our domain under Public_Html with a sub folder named for the new account. What am I doing wrong?

You should be able to edit that, what cPanel inserts automatically is just a suggestion.

Thanks for the replies. Yes, I figured it out: deleting the login name and entering the sub folder worked. Another question:
My new FTP user eventually wants to have three subfolders. Is there any way I can just create the folders and give his FTP account access to them or do I have to create new FTP accounts for each one?


Thanks Again!

The FTP user has access to any subfolders in the root folder of the FTP account.
If you create them make sure they have correct permissions.
