    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.

    Cheers,

    Keith.

    cpanel is just an easy interface. you can create directly on the command line if you want, there shouldn't be any issue.
