Adding FTP privilege for a specific deep directory


#1

I already have this Shell+FTP user with some domains, and now I want to add another user with only FTP privileges that can only access only one of the directories under one of my domains??

Checked the panel, this seems impossible.

Thanks!

It is impossible with FTP, but can be done with SFTP. FTP caps users within their own home directory. SFTP allows users to go to other permitted user directories, but you need to properly set groups and permissions:

I thought I fixed it fast enough. I also didn’t realize that I had a stalker watching my every move :open_mouth: .
