Separate user for uploading


i have a domain on my account for my church. each week, the sermon is recorded on a computer and compressed for upload to the web. on my previous host, which used cpanel, i had a separate ftp user that logged in directly to the sermon directory. on the recording computer, a sync program is run that logs in via ftp as that user and uploads the new recordings.

for security purposes, i don’t want to give out the main website user/pw info because there are many people that have access to the recording computer. but it seems like under the dreamhost cp, there is no way to create a separate user that would only have access to the recordings directory and not the rest of the website.

is there any solution to this problem?


You can create a new FTP user, then remap one of their directories to show up on your website:
