Splitting web-space, need help

my buddy has a dreamhost acct already, and has for a little over a year. I am now going to split the costs with him and split his space.

he has a website and uses the space for that, whereas I want it purely for file-hosting and image-hosting for hot-linking to forums and whatnot.

What’s needed to do this?

He made me a login, but nothing I upload to there is accessable. What have i yet to do?


By “a login” I assume you mean an FTP user? That action will create you a user space but you’ll need a web root inside that user space to be able to serve files via http. You can either purchase a domain and have your buddy set it up in your user sapce, or just have him setup a free DREAMHOSTERS.COM subdomain, then you can serve your files from there
