I have mistakenly navigated up out of my default directory via SFTP and am now seeing tons of folders relevant to the server and can't get back to my webapps. What's the path?

Your home directory is /home/your_username.

If you're in SFTP at the command line, you can do "cd /home/your_username" to get there/

If you are in a GUI FTP client, note that you cannot click through /home, since our permissions prevent that. You'll need to use whatever means your FTP client provides to get you to a specific path without clicking.
