my first so firstly good afternoon to you.
i'm confused as you like having read some replies in this.
I want one folder so a mate can upload and share his mixes with the world - i want him to have access to it via FTP and to that folder only.
I have worked it out using the menu on the main site that I needed to set up a sub directory remapping to set up a folder
that has now been done and i called it guest for example.
this remapping to "guest" is apparently working.
When i trried to create an ftp called "guest" i was told i couldn't have that as it was used already. So i set up mymate or whatever. "Mymate" ftp is now active for him passworded and usernamed etc..
it says elsewhere that I need link the user to the folder - does it set up that link automatically from the username i created?
eg .home/mymate/ as an example if i create a user ftp of "my mate"
does that mean i can't upload with my files to the main site or will it redirect all that as well in to this new folder?? has it changed MY settings to the main site. i read here that I'd have to log in as him now with his details??
Don't want that!!
I've uploaded half my site and it all works great. however I think now when i try to upload next time (at a friends as i don't have a nret connection right now and am at work) it'll upload th files for the main site and put it all in this new mymate home folder thing.
so my question is this
with the remapping to the now what appears "guest" folder reroute anything (including my potential uploading files next week) will be remapped (ie put?) in that mymate folder?
the ftp account I've created will work for him i should imagine to "mymate" folder.
- have i broken the default setup for me uploading. all this sub directory thing is baffling
Apologies for this being so lengthy and i'm hoping someone can help me.
Any response welcomed with very open arms!
ps i've spent two hours searching that knowledge base and on a thread in a fdifferent forum here someon is talking of a sub domian fo rthe user. I haven't created a sub domain
i just want one folder for him and be able access/upload/delete everything within my main domain
i use Dreamweaver to upload directly, not ftp so i presume all this sub folder redirectiing won't affect me??
if so how do i reverse this mess to get it back as it was?
I'll just upload for him i guess into a newly created folder I'll incorporate in Dreamweaver.
(edited for clarity as i didn't even understand it on readback)
