    Is there something I'm just missing or is there no way to create an alternate FTP account for any given domain?

    Let's say Joe is the UserID and test is the password for mydomain.com

    How can I create an FTP account that ends up in the same area?

    You can't do it in the control panel. What you can do is create an ftp accoiunt in the control panel then edit /etc/proftpd/username. You can change the dir the ftp account will login to there. You will need root access to do it.

    I'm still doing something wrong...

    Thanks Daniel!

    I am still doing something wrong..

    I modified the entry so the folder directive is the same but it still comes up in the subfolder. Also, I still have to use the username@domain.com instead of just a username.

    Why is the @domain.com needed if you are logging into the domain as the server?

    It seems this would be a common need, more than one person working on a site, etc...

    Any plans to modify the FTP account setup in Cpanel so it allows this?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Did you restart proftpd after you made the changes in /etc/proftpd/user?

    Nope, never even crossed my feeble mind

    :)

    Heck no...I never even considered that as a possibility.

    I will try to figure out how to accomplish that task..I wonder if it's on WHM?

    Thanks!

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd stop
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/proftpd start
