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.
