Hi all – I’ve spent about an hour trying to figure this out within the panel, and also searching forum posts, but do apologize if this is staring me in the face somewhere.
I am not the domain or account owner but am a highly trusted user who has been granted full mgmt privs except billing. I need to access via sftp the very root level of the account in order to get to wiki & similar subdomains to edit various config files I’ve been tasked with tweaking. (I edit in a text editor via my ftp client)
Yet even with what appear to be full domain management privs for my username, when I ftp or sftp in I am landed in my own home directory with no way to get up to the root. How do I ftp to the root level of the account (highly preferable), or at the very least to ftp one at a time into various subdomains such as wiki.domain.com ?
I am familiar with plesk and cpanel but not dreamhost’s panel. Basic familiarity with *nix concepts … you prob. don’t need to break it down to beginner level for me, just tell me where to look?
