Ftp Acces And Php Training

Recommended Posts

I want to give a staff member of mine access to my account so that he can practice using php and mysql. I know that I can give him FTP access (but forgot how to do that), but I'm not clear that giving him access to a subdomain or test account by ftp will give him enough access to play around with the code.


Is this doable, assuming that I'm going to trash the subdomain when he's finished?


and - HOW do I do it?

OK - I set this up and now can't figure out how to get into it.


More specifically - the person I'm trying to help says that he normally just types the ftp address into a browser window and gains access that way (as opposed to using an ftp software solution).


Here's what I have: ftp://subdomain@maindomain.net


That actually does bring up an authentication window, but when I put the password in - it doesn't work.


How do I give him access to the subdomain? What am I doing wrong?

I don't use a browser to FTP. Try it in an FTP client.


And it would be subdomain.domain.ext not subdomain@domain.ext



No - it wasn't a typo... the configuration you mention brings up this error messag:


The connection was reset


The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.



* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few



* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network



* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure

that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.


In IE7 I get:


Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage


Most likely causes:

You are not connected to the Internet.

The website is encountering problems.

There might be a typing error in the address.


And - I gather he doesn't have a client and hasn't ever had to have one. Is that a requirement for sites hosted here?
