FTP users and slow creating databases


#1

Is there a way to change the homedir of an FTP user? I want to create an FTP user to be able to change files in a certain directory.

IE.
Letting the user “files” be able to upload/edit all files on http://www.site.com/files

Also, I created my first databases quickly, but everytime I try to create a database afterwards, it takes forever. I click submit and sits there loading for a very long time. Any reason?

Thanks,

I’m getting this right now as well. Hoipefully it’s just a temporary thing. If it doesn’t work by morning, I’ll open a support ticket.

As for the FTP thing, does this help:

If not, you could try creating groups and changing file/directory permissions etc.
