Just to make sure we're on the same page, because I am by now thouroughly confused. I thought I could handle most simple computer issues given a bit of directions, but apparantly that is not so...
Anyways, what I'm trying to do is set up a new user that does not have general access. He has a limited access to ftp so that he (them that get the username and pwd) can upload files that can then be accessed universally on the www. As it is I can see the index of the url I thought the files would appear at (hofteigur.net/gurpsfiles).
I'm fine with setting up a subdomain for it if that means it will work. But if that isn't the issue I just as well not.
My problem is with getting ftp access. I'm using a ftp client which I can't seem to get access with (works fine for the main user access) and I think it's possibly because I'm directing it to the wrong path.
Now, I've only set up a new user but not set up any form of subdomain. I have remapped the sub-directory gurpsfiles however.
Maybe I'm just reading this all the wrong way. Thanks very much for your patience and advice so far.
Edit: I've probably done this wrong or something. I've deleted this user (again!) and I'm going to try to set up a new user, with his own subdomain and see if that works. Still, pretty frustrating. I did search for help regarding this, but a step by step guide might be nice...
