    When I used to create new FTP accounts using cPanel, I would always put a '/' in the directory so that the default folder; when connecting via FTP, would be above the web root. Now it's defaulting to public_html which is not what I want. This seems to have happened after recent updates.
    Is there a way around this? I need my FTP access to be above public_html.
    Thanks
