    There is an FTP HowTO?

    This is the default behaviour. Each user has his own homedir (e.g. /var/www/web1/user/web1_username) that only he (and of course the site admin who can access everything) can see via FTP.

    OK! but I have operated in this way: - from the administrator access https://sitename:81/ I have created a new site called ftp2.e-pasqui.com setting up a limit of space and a limit of traffic. After I have created two new users through the tab "NewUsers & Email".

    The problem is that this two users approach, after authentication through software ftp, to the same directory and obviously they see the same data.

    I Have mistaken something or must be executed other operations?

    They are slightly different, but it's hard to see at first sight. ;)
