I'd like to allow someone to upload some files to my site. I do not want to allow them access to any other folders or files.

 

Do I set up a folder at the same level as my public_html folder, within the public_html folder or something else and then what?

 

Thanks for the help - detailed answers are appreciated as I have not done this before.

When you create an ftp user in cpanel

select the folder you wish them to have access to.

if you let them use the / (public_html folder)

they will have access to all your folders and files.

 

Cpanel will create the folder if it does not exist.

 

When you create the account enter a user name like

steve

enter a password like

theblob

then change the folder from the default of the user name to somthing like

stevesfiles

 

 

now steve will use ftp.your-tch-domain.ext

user steve@your-tch-domain.ext

password theblob

and his ftp program will take him to the folder

stevesfiles

and he will not be able to navagate any higher.

 

does that help :dance:

I think so - I will try it. But why not use:

name: Don

pass: theblob

You can use any user name you wish

and a different folder name, its up to you.

I thought that you were kidding by using another moderator's name.

anyway I like to use a different folder name than the user name as provided by default for a little security.
