    Hi there,

    When create an hosting account, the user gain access to the root of the hosting account, for example: /home/user/public_html

    Exists the ability to limit access to the / of the user account when ftp?

    How to limit users to prevent manage or enter to directories that are common of the correct functioning of the account. For example, prevent clients deleting directories.

    Awaiting replies, worm regards

    Hello,

    It's not yet possible to restrict the cPanel user itself, however you can create virtual FTP accounts with access limited to a defined directory. This is documented at:

    FTP Accounts - Documentation - cPanel Documentation

    Thank you.
