    hi all ... i'm new to cPanel so your help is much appreciated.
    i have gone through the demo version of cPanel but i felt that the FTP Management module is short of advanced FTP account management...

    1) can cPanel restrict FTP accounts to just being able to download but no upload/modify any file on the server?

    2) can cPanel restrict only 1 FTP account using the same username and password downloading at an instance? eg. cannot have 2 ppl sharing the same username and password donwloading at an instance.

    thx for the help in advance...
    Best Regard

    Well, cPanel can't, but the ftp daemons that it uses can. If you select proftpd as the daemon of choice it is probably one of the most configurable FTP servers there is.

    proftpd is installed with cPanel. cPanel runs on Linux (as well as other *NIX variants) ;)
