client of mine (and prob others would like to know) would like to know how (we) can setup a user so he has access to multiplue directories in FTP, but not \"root\" access to all their main files.

Please give detailed instructions

well.. there is a little workaround...

first, make the FTP user.. ex: ftpuser

he then has domain.com/ftpuser

now, make all the other folders below that one (ie: /ftpuser/dir2)..

then, TELNET IN, and CD to the /www dir: then: ln -s /home/acct/public_html/ftpuser/dir2 dir2)

that will make domain.com/dir2 point to domain.com/ftpuser/dir2 BUT NO one will know:) and the ftp user can write to that dir..

if ya need more help, lemme know
