    Your idea of a user is slightly different than an FTP user in a Cpanel system.

    Create an FTP user in Cpanel with the subdomain name you want [ e.g. sub1 ] then set up the subdomain [ sub1 ]. This will make both to point at the same subdirectory [ sub1 ].

    Logon to your new FTP account as hostname: sub1@domain.com and password: FTP account password. Now anything you upload will display at sub1.domain.com.

    Good luck. Don\'t forget to send me a postcard. :cool:
