A FTP user can store files and folders that are publicly available in the web subfolder and files that should kept private in the private subfolder.
I would like to ask you, how did you manage to disallow root from being able to create a directory under the site root folder?
Moreover, is there a way to rename the private folder to something else?
Thank you for your support,
