FTP Account name: It will be your FTP Username. Enter a name such as John, for example.
Home directory: If you want to give access to the entire /httpdocs folder, enter /httpdocs or change the folder path to a different path like /httpdocs/new-user, and your FTP user will be granted access to only the new-user folder. You can click on the directory icon to select the appropriate directory.
