I'm trying to upload new material for someone but can't seem to find the web content. I can login into the site with ftp but all I see are a logs directory and a Maildir and not the current web content. Suggestions?
You've either logged in as the incorrect user, or you've not created your Fully Hosted Domain yet:http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Domains_Control_Panel#Web_Hosting_options
As a check, look in the logs directory. There are subdirectories that correspond with any domains you've set up under that user.
