Hello All,

I am wanting to be able to create FTP storage area. But I do not want to allow Cpanel or any kind of domain or website. This is completely for backup use only. but when I create the user account via ssh. I am unable to access FTP. Is cpanel blocking me some way from using FTP?. when created from SSH?.. I am currently running CentOS 3.5. Any Suggestions Or advise will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Go on, have a guess
You won't be able to because cPanel modifies the authentication mechansim to allow for virtual FTP accounts. You'll have to either create a dummy cPanel account (e.g. a subdomain of one of your domains) or a virtual FTP account within a cPanel account.
