I have a developer that is going to install some scripts and a mysql database to add new functionality to my site.
He says that he needs access to the CPanel, I’m assuming he means my dreamhost control panel. This seems like a HUGE security risk.
Is there a way to allow him limited access to get his work done but not get into my account info, etc?
It seems FTP/Telnet is not something he wants to use because the CPanel will be easier.
I believe he is trustworthy from the reviews I have read, but I do not know him personally.
Any tips on how to work with third-party developers would be greatly appreciated!
