    When some one logs into the server via ftp, they get put into their home dir, ie /home/user Well, if they click on the .. they move up into /home and if they do it again they move into root!! / How can I prevent this? I am not sure how it got "enabled" in the first place, but I can not have that happeneing!!!!!

    I can't reproduce this using proftp or pureftp; both using cpanel stable. What OS, cPanel version, FTP server are you using?

    Red Hat 7.3, WHM 7.4.2 cPanel 7.4.2-R116 pure-ftpd. I have used this config before and this has never happened before, So I can not reproduce it either.

    I use nothing but stable also, however I just switched to proftpd from pure-ftp and I believe that it fixed the problem, but not sure why it happened, and I guess that also means that I can not use pure-ftp :mad: Oh well

    Squirrel, thanks for the reply, but no, this applies to every user on the server, not just for one individual, and they are not in the wheel group.

    Nevermind, I still have users that can access root through ftp clients.
