    Hi,

    I noticed that whenever i create an FTP account, it also creates a folder inside that public_http directory. If this is the case, then anybody can just browse to http://<domain/<ftpusername> how can I prevent this? what i am currently doing it to password protect the directory for web access but this is very time consuming and the passwords are not in sync with the FTP.

    Two things i want to do:

    1. Either remove the ability to browser the folder althogether
    2. or sync the web password to the ftp account (automatically) upon creation

    any help please?

    Thanks.

    goto Index Manager

    You can turn off the browsing of those directories with your index manager from cpanel account login.

    Just turn off and your good to go.

    I'm not aware of such a feature without custom programmgin

    I have not seen anything as far as an add-on script that would perform such a feature/function.

    However, you may find some highly qualified folks on this forum that could write such a script.

    Index Manager is located in the cPanel account

    It's typically towards the bottom of the page. I guess you could always edit the httpd.conf, or .htaccess files directly, but it's much easier to use the Index Manager.

    Login into cpanel, not WHM and scan the icons.
    If it's not available, you could turn it in via WHM, in your features list/edit packages.
