I set up a new user for ftp purposes earlier tonight. I may simply have gotten the whole thing backwards but the original/root/main username for my DreamHost account works fine through the Cyberduck ftp client on Mac OS X.
So… my domain at DreamHost is hofteigur.net. I set up a new user, gurpsfiles, and I’d have expected to see the path hofteigur.net/gurpsfiles become active. Home directory is listed as /home/gurpsfiles but I’m at loss at how to enter this info into my client to make it work right. Does my main user need to create the directory?
With path set as home/gurpsfiles in the client I get an error listing no such directory when logging on with my ftp client. It then goes on to show me a root with the folders Maildir and logs. If I ftp upload a file to that root I’ve no idea how to get an url for it…
Maybe I’m just being very stupid but I’d really appreciate being set in the right direction on this.
