I installed the proftp rpm on fedora 5. When I log in as a user using ftp, none of my files show. if I do a pwd I get / which is not my home directory. How to fix this?

Edit the file /etc/proftpd.conf and restart the proftpd daemon.

Add the line:

DefaultRoot                     ~


and the default directory after login will become the user's home directory.

Also, double check the home directory of the user inside /etc/passwd to make sure it goes to the correct place.

maybe that is a new user who has no files yet?  or possibly all the files are hidden files which start with a dot?
