[iOS] FTP scanning starts at the root

Hello everyone, I installed the latest version of foobar2000 on iOS, and I want to add my music from my FTP server.

So I added the address of my server, as well as the path where my music is stored:

When scanning the library foobar2000 does not take the /media/music path into account, but starts at the root ("/"). So it adds other content that I don't want. Indexing is very long because it goes through my entire FTP server :(

Unfortunately, I cannot create another login to block the user in a single directory.

Did I do something wrong?

Thanks for your help !

(iPhone 15 pro, iOS 17.4.1 , foobar2000 v1.4.5 + 1.5 bêta)
