When a users creates an ftp account in their profile / Site,  Where does Cpanel save this information.

I am in the need to move some FTP locations and if I can find where it stores the ftp accounts
I can just change the path.

Under FTP Manager. You'll see the accounts listed with the subfolders they have permission to look at.

You MIGHT have to delete the accounts and re-enter them; the version of cpanel on my server does not allow you to edit the account -- only to set a quote or change the password. To give access to new subfolders, I either have to create a new account or delete the existing one and recreate it using the new folder.

I am looking for a answer to edit a file on the server
no to just delete and recreate the accounts.

They must be in a text file or database some where.

Ah.

I doubt you can get to them; I believe that would be giving you root access to the server, and most ISPs won't do that for anyone (for obvious reasons). You'll probably have to get your ISP to help you.

I said I had root access, my question is where is the ftp information is stored.
you did not tell me where the ftp information was stored, you said to ask for help from the ISP!

I asked for help here, not to have you tell me to ask for help somewhere else and give you the points.
