    OK...I have a customer who logs into his site via FTP. When he logs in, ha can see no files and has to change his directory to /public_html. He cant see any files in the / directory (which should be /home). That is one problem...the other problem is that he can not upload any filews to his site. He is ftp'd in, but when he tries to upload it gives a 550 error, permission denied. I know this is like this, because I replicated the problem with wsftp. It wouldnt let me upload either. What could be the problem here?

    Uploading using cpanel works fine, just not ftp.

    Any help?

    Try chmod 775 for your webroot
    like for the webroot being /home

    try chmod 775 on /home (NOT RECURSIVELY)

    Just for that dir alone.
    It might help..........

    Otherwise you'll need to provide more information about how exactly your machine is configured. ;)
