    I'm trying to create an ftp account for someone to upload data, but I do not want them to have full access anyplace else.
    I tried to add an ftp account of "guest" with the directory field = "/guest"
    When I ftp to the server with
    It brings the user to the public_html/guest path, but they can easily navigate upward and modify/delete whatever they want.
    How can I limit them?
    I tried to play with subdomains but I'm not sure how this effects anything.

    Help is appreciated. I tried for several hours before posting for help, but at this point I'm stuck.
