    Create the account, log in to the cPanel, create an FTP account. Give it a Username/Password, then do not give them the cPanel password.

    Or am I not understanding what you want?

    What about the opposite way, to allow all cpanel futures and not allowed FTP access since the user have the main account name and password which is apply to the FTP as well

    Thanks

    You need root shell access.

    To disable ftp:
    Add username in /etc/ftpusers

    Description:
    Deny FTP access. The ftpusers file is used to deny FTP access to specific users. The format is a simple text file listing the restricted users one per line.

    Solution:
    Create a blank text file and name it ftpusers. Put this file in to /etc/. Then enter the user name(s) that you wish not to have ftp access.

    Looks like this :
    username
    username2
    etc.etc.

    :)
