Ftp access


#1

I want to let someone else ftp to my site also. How do I do that? Thanks!

Give them your password. You’re welcome :wink: All kidding aside, this is the easiest way, and a suitable alternate to this is to set up a special FTP user before you create the site so you can share that password. In my case, every domain gets its own FTP user, but I mostly do that for housekeeping. In your case, you can give the keys to one domain to someone without them having the keys to your other domains.

But if you want a different user to have access, try these hoops:

It seems sometimes a simple job isn’t simple to do in the world of Unix. Your suggestion is a fix I might be able to handle…not too familiar with Unix shells; and I don’t like hoops. Thanks and have a good’n.
