    My Boss is going to kill me!! - HELP!!

    Hi everyone,

    I am new to cpanel and my boss assigned me to set up a FTP Account or Web Protected files for document storage. We have 5 people in the company and we want two to have all rights and the other three to be only able to upload and download files. We do not want the three to be able to have the same rights as the first two. That is in order to stop them from deleting a folder by accident.

    How can I create five general folders:
    Admin, Forms & Templates, Human Resources, IBM, Recruiting and Sales.

    wher all users can get into these main folders and add sub-folders and files, but
    cannot add new main folders or delete main folders?

    Do I do it through FTP MANAGER, WEB PROTECTED FILES or on the FTP CLIENT side?

    Please help, Urgent as this is my bottom!!!

    Thanks everyone: my email is jdsmith8@comcast.net

    Dave :eek: :eek:

    You won't generally be able to set up this level of varying privileges with one or more FTP accounts.

    Your best option is to either create or a acquire a web-based document management system that allows varying levels of privileges. I imagine a trimmed-down opensource project management application would do the trick.

    For that, I'm afraid, you'll have to do some traditional hard work and just hunt around on the web using your favourite search engine.

    Just curious ..if your boos knew you weren't ready to take care of something like this then why would he ask you to do it and second why would he "kill you" if you couldn't?
