Description

Determines the directory a user is placed in after logging in. By default, the user is put in their home directory. The specified directory can be relative to the user's home directory. NOTE: If the specified directory is not available then DefaultChdir is treated as if it wasn't there in the first place. In particular, in this case the directory a user is placed in after logging in is determined by the other settings in proftpd.conf.
