Root Alias

#1 Post by dvdmrrck » 2020-07-10 13:25

When I SSH FTP to my remote host, I get many levels of customer path on the remote host followed by my website tree; this makes the resulting tree display very messy. Naturally I would like the customer path to be omitted in the actual display i.e. in the connections settings as well as providing my real root path it would be ideal to provide the path that should be displayed as in the display tree (which might well be a zero length to hide it all together so you only see base and sublevels in a clean way, of course if you're jumping a little way into the tree too you'd want the display as to reflect the subbranch). Naturally trying to go up levels would be limited by the number of levels in the Display As.
Cheers, David

Just place the server in a chroot.
