Thread: I have few Questions

I should probably know this info but I seem to be having a brain-fade day today.
When a new hosting customer is created their ID and PW are added to the .htpasswd and a new group is created for them and added to the group file.
Question 1: Are these the files that are used to authenticate the customer when they are using FTP or is there some other file (ie: a .ftppasswd) somewhere?
Question 2: If a customer has a .htpasswd file in their /home/user directory, is that file ever used or does Linux always refer to the server wide .htpasswd file?
Thanks in advance.

Depending on your OS there is a separate file that contains all the username/password/group info in it. This is different from the .htaccess files and .htpasswd files.
If you are looking for something in particular, let me know more details. (OS, ControlPanel, etc...)
