How to setup so FTP goes directly to public_html?

    I have many clients who are newbies at web hosting and they keep accidently uploading files into the root directory instead of the public_html directory. Is there a way to configure cPanel/WHM so that when a new account is set up, FTP is configured to automatically load files into public_html?

    Thank you.

    Nope. The problem is you need all of the home directory to store things such as email.

    Perhaps do a better welcome letter that points it out in bold?

    It really can be a headache trying to help new users figure out simple things that are well documented. You could also try doing some sort of flash demo on ftp uplodaing.
