    I am new to WHM and I am trying to setup an FTP through this. I try to create an account and I get the following error...

    WWWAcct 8.0 by J. Nick Koston

    Please use the this syntax
    wwwacct

    Reseller privs added!
    Account Creation Complete!!!

    The account does not get created even though it says that it is. Very strange. Any ideas what I can do to actually get an account successfully created?
    Thanks in advance

    i do not think that you can create an ftp account using the WHM. When you create a domain using the WHM; you will be giving an username and password to create the same along with a package for the account.

    Once the account is created successfully; you can ftp to the server to the home of the user that you have created with the corresponding username and password.

    I was told I need to create an account in WHM, then I can access the section to create FTP accounts through that. I have been getting nothing but errors. :eek:

    Yes you do have to create an account in WHM however not an FTP account. You must create an account for a domain. Then log into the control panel for that domain to setup the FTP accounts for the same.
