    I set up an FTP account in my CPanel, but need to find out how to assign permissions for uploading/deleting etc.. to users/account.

    Does anyone know?

    Also does anyone know why CPanel makes your user id username@domainname.com and not just username? This causes a problem when I use my OS's built in FTP because I have to enter username@domainename.com then add the @domainname.com when the login box appears for it to accept a password. I can not use my actual user name from cpanel or it would be ftp://username@domainname.com@domainname.com

    Is there a way to set up FTP accounts with only the username without the username@domainname.com being the user name and also how to set Permissions in CPanel to allow certain accounts or users access to upload/download/delete/view only ?

    Please help,
    JD:eek:

    The format of user@example.com is used so that another account on the same server can then choose user@another.example.com. If the username was merely 'user', no other account on the server could use that username.

    If by "my OS's built in FTP" you mean Internet Explorer (IE) then, yes, this is what happens and, no, there's currently nothing you can do about it.

    It could be argued that the problem is with IE using the @ character for special purposes when there's (probably) no mention of such a usage in the relevant RFCs.

    However, it could also be argued that cPanel should be well aware of the fact that IE uses the @ character for special purposes, whether or not IE is right to do so, and that an alternative format of user+example.com, as can be used with mail logins, should be adopted. I'd like to see this alternative format adopted, but frankly don't care enough to log it in bugzilla.

    No, this is not possible through cPanel.

    How to set a right permission to new ftp user

    Hi,

    You can set your new ftp user's permissions through File Manager. Simply select the File Manager tab, choose the folder which you want to set permissions, then select change permission tab and set the permission whatever you want.

    Please feel free to share your experience about this.

    Thank you
    Sameer
