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
