    I want to create an ftp account to allow a shoutcast user to access thier server configuration file and upload intro files etc there.

    How can I create an ftp account on its own, without having to make a whole account in cpanel?

    Go on, have a guess
    Just create an FTP account within a cPanel account for the user and restrict their access to the directory of your choice.

    I cant use this for folders outside the users directory though so i would be restricted to anything inside \home\user
