    Hello there !

    I would like for my customers to have ftp access to
    www.mark/public_ftp.

    2. I would like the ftp login to be password protected - the password will not be very secret as it will be shared among many customers. The password is just to stop unwanted/unknown users from uploading junk-data.

    3. The files can be read/write/delete for everyone - I'll just make sure everybody is aware that the data is not "secure".

    Is it possible to link the public_ftp/incomming directory to the
    public_html/upload/public directory?

    That way customers can upload, say an image file, and then on the forum they can make a link to the image file.

    For example:

    A customer has a screen shot he wants to post on the forum.

    1. He uploads it via ftp to public_ftp/incoming/forum/images/my_image.jpg

    2. He posts a URL in the forum to
    http://www.mark.com/upload/public/forum/images/my_image.jpg

    If public_html/upload/public is linked to public_ftp/incoming then that should work - right?

    Anyway that's what I want to achieve - to allow users to upload data via ftp that they can then reference via URLs in the forum.

    Any help would be highly appreciated. Thank u for ur time.

    Dear Markwaugh,

    You can create an ftp account through ftp manager under public_html and distribute the password to those customers for that account. In that way you can provide a link like http://yourdomain/ftp_folder/file so that the file could be accessed and also those customers can add,edit and delete files of that folder.
