FileZilla is being a bit too "helpful." I set up my remote account in the Advanced tab of the Site Manager to default to the following remote directory:
That's it. Not /public_html -- public_html.
But regardless of whether I enter public_html or public_html/, FileZilla is adding a slash at the beginning.
No other FTP software has ever had a problem with me entering public_html as the default directory. Since public_html and /public_html are NOT the same thing, I consider this a bug and would like to see it fixed in the next version of FileZilla.
If FileZilla truly wants to be helpful, how about testing whether public_html exists, and if it doesn't work, suggesting to the user that they might have meant /public_html?
The Site Manager only accepts absolute paths which are always a child of the root directory. "public_html" is a relative path and as such has to be made absolute.
