What is my FTP root or Site default directory?

Linux / PHP Websites

You can create your ftp user to point to the direct ftp root of the website or to a folder in which there is another folder where the website files are kept in.

You can create a website going to a lets say /home/cpuser/clients/user1/mydomain.co.nz and then have a ftp user going to /home/cpuser/clients/user1.  Now the ftp user will need to change in to the mydomain.co.nz directory to upload the website files when they opens the ftp conenction.  Alternatively, one can set up their ftp client to automatically go in to that particular folder by setting the ftp root folder to be as mydomain.co.nz.


Windows / ASP Sites


Every ASP website has a FTP user assigned to it.  When a website is created from our control panel, a folder called mydomain.co.nz is created for that domain name on the server.  The ftp user will need to change in to the mydomain.co.nz folder to put the website files.  Alternatively, one can set up their ftp client to automatically go in to that particular folder by setting the ftp root folder to be as mydomain.co.nz.
