My Data Center added a 2nd hard drive to my server for me. All I want this drive to do is this......

Just for storage for me and me alone. The drive is mounted and formated. I need access to the whole drive via FTP. A GUI ftp, not command line.

How do I create a FTP only account? (no web site, domain or e-mail) Also this account needs to have access to the whole drive and the drive is /backup

This is on a dedicated server that I have SSH access to.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Just setup an account on the server, and then change the mountpoint for the drive to something like /home/username/folder

Then the normal users FTP account will be able to access it. This is the easiest way.
