FTP Account separate to cPanel


Mar 30, 2010
Hi all,

I'm new to the forums!

I've got a question for anyone on here.

I currently have a CentOS 5.4 box, which has cPanel on it. What I'm wanting to do is create an FTP account and username at the command line. Purely for file uploads/downloads. Will this interfere with cPanel's FTP operation in anyway or will I be fine doing this?

I'm wanting to avoid doing this in cPanel to avoid the FTP account being in anyway associated with Apache, I also don't want any quota management on it, which is why I'm choosing to do this from the linux command line.

I hope someone can offer some assistance, I'm pretty sure that I'll be fine doing this, but thought I'd check to be sure.
