It has been a really long time since I did this and I was hoping that someone could walk me through it.

I have an ftp_user1 and when he gets on, his home directory is .../vhosts/website1.com/html

I would like to create  an ftp_user2 and when he gets on, have his home directory set to .../vhosts/website2.com/html

Any ideas?
