    of all the servers I am looking after, only problem I am facing as of now is
    providing a weekly copy of accounts from backup drive to assigned employee
    who would download it to 2 office locations via ftp.
    What I do is, move the tars to a dummy sub-domain, chown them and he downloads them.

    I cannot share root information with him, neither he is familiar with root privileges
    and its importance nor I am authorized to allow him with root login.

    Is there a possibility I create a cPanel user and allow it only with access to backup drive ?

    any possibilities ?

    If you have the access to create a cPanel account, it means that you have reseller permissions. Decide here if this new account you're creating should have WHM access and be able to create accounts themselves.

    I am not asking about account creation

    I am concerned about having another user who is restricted to login only to /backup/
