    How can I change a user's home dir for ftp? I've added a domain but I think something messed up in the process because when I ftp, I am not taken to the normal /home/user/ path... I dont know where I'm taken.

    Thanks

    Yes, i'm sure it's not anonymous access.

    Ok, i was going to add shell acces for this user and login to see where it took me, but they are not listed in the Manage Shell page... though they are listed in my accounts.

    To determine the location:

    1) Upload a file with a very obvious and unique filename
    2) From shell: locate -u; locate very_obvious_filename
