    hi guys,
    in ispconfig, i created a new client, site, and corresponding ftp user.

    my admin ftp user home directory is /var/www/clients/client0/web1

    according to ispconfig, the new ftp user home directory is /var/www/clients/client2/web5

    In filezilla, i cheated a little when creating the new ftp user and duplicated the original admin one, changing the username and password to reflect new client ftp account in ispconfig.

    However, when i connect using this new ftp user, filezilla is displaying the home directory for my admin ftp account! (i have not manually assigned any directory in filezilla...this is all set to default, which is blank, and i believe then filezilla uses whatever directory the server provides for said ftp account).

    Why is it giving access to the wrong ftp account directory? what am i doing wrong? (is this some kind of cache thing in filezilla?)

    EDIT...yep its being cached. I went into filezilla>Edit menu> Clear private data> (selecting quick connect history and reconnect information). Problem solved
