Setting users' home folders

Users have full permissions to their home folders. Even if users do not log in to their home folders, you can specify a home folder for the user.

To set a user's home folder:

  1. From the top menu, select Host > Users. The Users page opens.
  2. In the list of users, select a user by clicking on the linked Username. The Edit User page opens.
  3. In Home folder, enter the full path to a user's home folder (relative from the file server root) or click Browse to locate one.
  4. Click Save.

    Note: If you want to keep a user from navigating outside their home folder, select the Lock user to home folder option. If you want to hide the path to the user's home folder, as displayed in the FTP client, select Show home folder as root.
