    I configured backups of my system to /backups and now I want to create an FTP account to download the files.

    How can I do that? Cpanel does not allow to create an user outside home.


    Thanks!

    Hello :)

    You can utilize SFTP as "root" to access the /backup directory and download the files. If you are using Windows, then a FTP client such as Filezilla will allow you to use SFTP.

    Thank you.
