Check your FTP configuration to see where the -ftp- root dir is. I doubt
that it is "/" and would therefore be empty unless you have previously
setup some structure under it.
As you reported in an earlier post when you did an ls all that came back
was the . (the current) and .. (the parent) dirs meaning there is
nothing else there to see or cd to.
