Hi Sannyasin,

glad it's a directory walking problem, those are easier to solve than  
login ones!

as I see, you're putting double slashes to force user back to his  
homedir. I always tought homedir was represented by tilde (~) sign in  
unix enviroments, can you try this line

   put  url  
"ftp://user%40himalayanacademy.com:password@555.55.55.55/~/ 
mainwebsite_html/"

Server will folow ~ to the root of the homedir, so if your absolute  
path for homedir is /home/himalayan/ then replacing this with ~ should  
do the trick. Let me know.


It might work... I use something like this here.

cheers
Andre
