Thanks. But, I do not know what you are talking about really when you ask how many CMS. Is that a rhetorical question?
I have seen many business sites where clients are sent an address with a username and password, which lead to an normal, insecure FTP site where they either pickup or drop off documents.
This query of mine is mainly about using my DreamHost FTP availability to get files too big to email.
I will have one site called onemanz.com, with subsites onemanz.com/guitar will have reviews about guitars, etc.
A guitar dealer took video of me sampling guitars at his shop. The files are way too big for email. I need him to be able to transfer video files too me via my ftp site, so I can then download them to my PC and edit them before putting them on my website.
A similar example, I shoot video of a band, I want them to have the raw files, so I want to put them on my FTP in a folder and have the guy on the West Coast download it by logging in with the guest account.
When I watch tutorials on this stuff, when setting up a user for FTP there is a place that allows one to have that user automatically enter a specific subfolder in FTP rather than the root directory.
1 - how do I make those subfolders in the FTP that came with DreamHost?
2 - how do I set up a new user so when they log in, they come into the subfolder? Or are otherwise restricted to only certain areas in the ftp directory.
When you say outdated, how else would I use this, other than an insecure third party site like Drop Box. I thought FTP was designed for just this sort of thing.
