What I would like to do is set the default directory above the root directory per user on FileZilla Server. I know this is possible with other FTP servers, but I can not seem to find where to set this for FileZilla Server.

For example, connecting with a FTP client, with no special instructions, the directory it reports when you do a PWD should be /ScottC instead of /.

I am having a little trouble figuring this out, when I try to search, all of the results are talking about setting up the default directory in FileZilla Client.

Per the FileZilla forms it can not be done.
