How do I FTP into specific folder


Hi,

I already have Slack 10's default FTP server up and running with just basic anonymous access. However, I would like to setup my box so that when I FTP with a specific username + password, it drops me into my /var/www/htdocs directory/folder. I've been trying to decipher ProFTPd's documentation, but all it talks about is directives. I would like instructions in the form of edit this, add that, you're done type of steps.

Thanks.

PS: I want to do it the way mentioned above because I'll be using DreamWeaver MX's FTP option to work with my personal site. It's all local area home network and FTP is not available outside to the world.

Goto: http://www.proftpd.org/
And take a look in the menu where it says Documentation that there are sample configs and good docs.

That's the thing. I already went through the Documentation area prior to starting this thread and still came out empty headed. LOL Ok, I don't know how to lock a user to a specific directory when they login, I guess. Is it a virtual host setup or what?

Thanks.
