Make sure you complete all the above steps and on Directory you can specify which folder should this user only be able to access (If you leave it empty will be /public_html directory). For example, you might only want to give permission to a certain folder instead of the entire directory. To do that let's suppose that we only want this user to be able to access folder /hosting, to do this we will write it as /home/theelect/public_html/hosting, In other words, you will need to specify where the folder is located.

Once you have entered all the required steps click Create FTP account
