 +Make sure to change** directory** option in ftp form.
 +The default value will show "/​public_html/​{$login_name}"​). Change it to: "/​public_html/​**your_sub_or_addon_dir_name ** . 
 +
 +For example: my Oxwall site is installed under www.mymaindomainname.com/​oxwall153,​ therefore when creating new FTP account I will use "/​public_html/​oxwall153"​ instead of default value.
