    How can you add FTP user access to this directory?

    /usr/local/cpanel/base/

    So you can login via FTP and change and modify files?

    thanks in advance

    I'm pretty sure this is only accessable via SSH. You can try SecureFX, which will give you FTP over SSH.

    Thanks for the reply.

    We had to re-install Cpanel, and lost the old configuration. I use to login via FTP with Dreamweaver with the user: cpanel. That worked just fine. Our Linux admin is on vacation until next week. I’ve tried SecureFX but cannot login. I think I have to edit the proftpd.conf file which I do not know how to do because I am unfamiliar with the commands. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.

    Ive tired doing this: http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?s=&threadid=10463

    but its says: ln -s /usr/local/cpanel/base/frontend frontend is not a vailid bash command?

    With SecureFX, make sure you choose protocol SFTP, port 22, user name 'root' and your root pass.
