I just signed up and am a little confused as to how to FTP to a individual site.

When I log into an a my main FTP I only see the apps.

What am I missing?

Thanks

You will want to read our documentation that covers the domain/website/application process step by step.

On our platform you are given a linux user.

This user has a home directory, that is what your FTP client will default to.

In the home directory is 4 other directories by default, bin, lib, logs and webapps.

The 'applications' in the control panel are real files on the file system and they are given their own directories in 'webapps'.

This file-system path is than routed depending on what kind of 'application' it is to the internet by binding the 'application' to a 'domain' with a 'website record'.

The other directories are, bin for binaries, lib for libraries and logs for logs.
