User access restrictions


#1

I want to add a new user.

I want this new user to only have access to the files in a specified hosted domain.

How do I set this up ?


#2

One option is to simply create a machine user, then specify this user as the ‘FTP user / CGI-runs-as user:’ in the Fully Hosted settings for the domain.

When this user logs in using FTP, they will only see the files for that domain.

Thank you.

No problem, glad to help.

Just a bit of clarification on my previous statement; When the user logs in using FTP, they will see their home directory with sub-directories with the same names as any domains that they control. It is within these sub-directories that the domains Internet accessible files are stored.
