Change Default FTP login


Ok,

I'm am trying to change the default FTP directory for a particular user.

For example, I used the .bash_profile to enter "cd /home/XXX/xxxxx.com" so that a default shell account from a particular user can go into this web directory I specified.

How (possibly without symbolic links) can I get a default FTP login to arrive in this same directory?

The reason I ask is because when I create a symbolic link and then click on it using my graphical FTP client, the FTP client tries to "download" it instead of linking to it directly...


To sum up.

I have this directory: /home/user1/xxxxxx.com

I have user 2, who by default logs into /home/user2... I have edited bash_profile to get this user into /home/user1/xxxxxxx.com by default during a shell login?

How can I mimic this behavior via an FTP login? Thanks so much!!!

One more thing... security restrictions prevent me from setting up a hard link which may have cleared up this whole thing to begin with. Thanks
