    Can someone help me with this?
    Setting up an area so people can login with ftp account and upload files, but cannot see or delete files.
    I have setup an ftp account, set the folder permissions for the folder it points to to 333
    It all works appart from I cant even access it to read the files using ftp with root account details.

    Cannot even see the contents via file manager.

    Is there a better way than this so that I (root account) can saee the files but people using the ftp acount cannot.

    many thanks,

    Hi Andy!

    Some people here have tried this before and as far as I know without success but I may be wrong. Do a search and you may find a solution.

    Why not create a directory and put an upload script in there.
    That way your users do not need FTP knowledge and also can't see what they have uploaded only that they have uploaded a file once they get to the confirmation page.

    Many of these scripts are available on the internet and if you cant find one PM me and I will send you one.

    Good Luck!
