FTP Accounts


#1

Hi,

I am setting up a site which requires other users to be able to ftp to it.

Can anyone please tell me how to set this up please? Unfortunately, we cannot use sftp here.

For example:
I am admin1 and have a site called domain.com
/home/admin1/domain.com/

I want to setup 2 extra ftp accounts, user1 and user2; they would be able to access /home/admin1/domain.com/, add/modify/delete the files there.

Thank you very much for your help

Just log in with the same FTP user and password. Really, why make things more difficult? If they’re allowed full access, just use the same login.

But if you want to make things difficult, not using SFTP seals the deal. You’re out of luck. FTP is sandboxed and no other user can leave their own home directory to enter some other home directory.
