    Hi there ,
    I'm trying to create a directory that is NOT in my publicly accessible web space and can't figure how to do it .
    When I log-in via FTP , my location is at " / " (/home/marianna/public_html ) .
    My intention is to create a " lib " directory at " /home/marianna/lib " ( one directory above of /public_html ) and include the path of this folder into my PHP scripts .
    Finally , I created a " lib " folder into my public directory with file--permittions 700 , but that's not the right way to include libraries into my PHP files .
    The FTP GUI interfaces that I'm using are Filezilla or WinSCP .
    Any help , idea's or suggestions are highly appreciated .
    Thanks .....

    In FileZilla, I believe that when you are in your home directory, you can right-click on any file and then choose 'Create Directory'.
