    I have transferrd all the accounts from the old server to a newer xeon server.
    Now all the FTP accounts have (/home/user1240/public_html/d20trader) added as i have transferrd to the new server.
    if I create a new FTP user in this new server then I just get (/shylesh).where shylesh is the new FTP user I have added.
    I have alreday 45 FTP accounts on the server, and i do not want to recreate all the accounts.

As these users as wellas the files are transferred, the problem has been created on the users which weer on th old servers.
    No problem if i create a new user on the new server.

    If you transfered the domain from the old server and deleted it from there, then wat is the problem, i am failing to understand here.

    While deleting the domain from the old server, did you delete the ftp users one by one first or you just deleted the account ??

    You didn't get it all.
    Actually this account was transferred using the Restore facility from the WHM of the new server.
    NOTE: i) All accounts are configured under the /home on the old server.
    ii) All accounts are now configured under the /home2 on this new server

    Everything is working fine. BUT if you see inside the FTP user in the CPanel there is a hyperlink adjacent to every FTP user you have created[which is /d20 in my case.] If i click this leads to open a new window with the URL : http://domainanme.com/d20/ [This will be clear to you.]
    If i create a new FTP user everything is fine. but all the old FTP users that I have transferred from the old server has the following adjacent link[/home/username/public_html/d20], which was used to be in the old case.[Remen\mber that now the home is ben shifted to /home2/ now in our case].

    Got it! ;-)

    Just open this file

    /etc/proftpd/domain_user_name

    You will find all your ftp users inside it as well their paths inside it. Just edit the path as you need and the same path is displayed in cpanel.

    cheers!
