    Howdy,
    As an end user of CPANEL there is some MAJOR FTP PROBLEMS.
    As a owner/admin of my site, there is no way I can make a seperate FTP account, for users to login to my site and modify the site. CPANEL makes a directory for the user. There is no way I can give a user direct access to the top level of my site (/)
    Is there anything I have missed?

    Nope. You can always have your host direct the user's ftp account to whatever level you need it at though.

    Howdy,
    I have been in contact with my HOST, and they can't change it manually anyway. They say it changes back after 24 hrs.
    Anyway, I should be able to control that from CPANEL

    1) create an additional account like '[b:a3cb9c57f2]main[/b:a3cb9c57f2]'

    2) in a SSH session :
    rm -rf /home/user-name/public_html/[b:a3cb9c57f2]main[/b:a3cb9c57f2]
    ln -s /home/user-name/public_html /home/user-name/public_html/[b:a3cb9c57f2]main[/b:a3cb9c57f2]

    then your designer can log in and upload your site to /home/user-name/public_html/ directory as you wish

    looks like you create additional FTP account for /home/user/public_html
