    I'd like to create a user without using whm/cpanel and then allow that user to access the system via ftp (pure-ftp). Does anyone know how to do this?

    I do this:
    /usr/sbin/adduser someuser
    passwd someuser (to set the password)

    then ftp using that un/pw, but I can't connect.

    I'm not sure how cpanel configures the pure-ftp authentication.
