    I am a HostGator's (Linux Hosting) customer who would like to create FTP accounts which:

    -) Have permission to download files
    -) Do NOT have permission to upload nor delete/copy/move files

    So, this users, which would have a specific UserName/Password (NOT anonymous login), would be able to see/browse all files and folders from a main path, download all files they want, but making changes to files/folders structure and contents would be denied...

    The HostGator's support guys told me this is NOT possible, only cPanel could change this reality; what is a big handicap for me...

    cPanel should allow to configure ProFTPd or simply allow to control FTP Accounts' PERMISSIONS!!...


    I tried to change attributes/permissions (CHMOD) using FTP and SSH and SFTP clients; but I got strange phenomenons! - When I change the permission, my FTP client tells me "OK, permissions now changed to ____"; however, this new permissions simply do NOT work - all changes I try to make are 100% IGNORED despite showing a message of (fake) success...

    Thus, the last hope is... cPanel itself...

    :confused:

    Thanks.
    Regards.

    There is a recently added feature request in our official feature request system you can vote on if you want this functionality:

    Typically the requests with the most votes receive higher priority.

    Your web host provider should be able to configure one or more FTP users for you with these capabilities.
