Default Is it possible to rename the private folder under v3.5.1?

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,

The web root folder is protected with he immutable attribute, so even root can not add subfolders without removing the attribute first. The festure is named folder protection and is configurable in server settings.

The name of the private folder us not onfigurable aet. But it might be. Good idea o add a option o configure the name.
