Can list and see files/dirs in Console, but missing dirs/files if listing via SFTP client
First off I’m a linux newb, trying to follow instructions found on the ‘net. So bear with me if I’m missing the obvious.
I’m trying to troubleshoot a droplet that won’t load due to a kernel panic.

So I can log on using recovery image, mount the disk image and chroot into the system.
Now if I cd into /boot/ I can see a list of images and other files/dir.
If I do the same for the /var/ I can see the www directory listed
BUT if I log on using a SFTP client (SmartFTP & Winscp), using the provided temp root password, I can not see the same list in /boot/, nor can I see the /www dir in /var/.
Opening a terminal window from within those clients also fails to see these directories and/or files.

same dir but using sftp client
/var/ in console
/var/ from sftp client
So can someone point out what I’m doing wrong here and how to fix the issue of the missing dir/files in sftp.
