Images directory

Every FTP user has home directory - some directory on the server where user are connected to by default. Depending on specific configuration or FTP account settings it may be different from one server to another. After server address, user name and password specified you may just browse your FTP and select which directory is used to store images. If you want to type path manually start from user home directory as shown above. 

Note: FTP account (settings - login/password) used for images management must have rights to read/write appropriate directories otherwise FTP feature may not work properly.

Click "Test Connect" button to verify whether all settings you have specified are correct. If everything is correct, you should see "Connection Successful" message.
