FTP User Dumped into Wrong Directory


#1

Hi,
I just created a new FTP user for one of my domains, and when they log in, it puts them in:
/home/username/

They’re unable to change to the directory they need to be in order to upload files to the site. Is there something I can to do change what directory they go into?

thanks,
Stephen

I had the same question a while back and E-mailed support.
This is what they said to me:

"Our system only allows one use to upload to a site. Each user must upload
and only has access to their own home directory. Home directories are now
assigned /home/username. You can update the user that you wish to upload
to your domain through the Domains::Web section of our Web Panel
https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=domain.web&. Click the 'Edit’
link and select the desired users from the drop-down menu.

On the other hand, you could remap your sub-directory to access files
within another users directory. Check out our KBase article regarding
remapping sub-directories
https://panel.dreamhost.com/kbase/index.cgi?area=2921&keyword=remap sub
dir. Let us know if we can help with anything else.

Thanks!
Brian S."
