Limited FTP access for subdomain

Hey everyone,

I’m a little slow with these things and spent hours trying to figure this one out. So please bear with me. Any help will be much appreciated.

Basically I created a subdomain which will act as a file sharing/transfer platform. How do I create multiple FTP users that’s only limited to that particular subdomain? I tried creating a new User but that gives access to everything.

You’ll have to use SFTP (many FTP programs support this), but it’s doable with some effort.

And don’t forget that you’re responsible for whatever these users upload. Make sure they’re trustworthy.

EDIT: Why not just create that subdomain as owned by a new user, then give everybody that username and password?


Yeah, if you create a new user it will only have access to the new subdomain (not ‘everything’). Just share the user’s info among those who require it - and like Scott suggests, choose whom you share the info with wisely.

Terribly sorry for the late reply guys. I tried Scott’s method. Worked like a charm. :smiley:

Thank you very very much!
