    I have disabled anonymous ftp access for the server, and I have a client wanting access to the public_ftp folder for ftp users. Is there a way to allow this access, or will they just have to use a folder in the public_html directory ?

    Probably depends on what kind of access they need/want. Setting 753 permissions on the folder would allow to upload but not list or view files.

    Hi Sawbuck,

    I actually meant using cPanel, can the client create an ftp user and give them access to the public_ftp folder ?

    id advise your client to just create an ftp account within public_html and give user n pass for it

    tell them its asecurity risk to have annyomous

    i my self dont allow clients do have annymous ftp access..
    keeps there account from being used as a warez dump server..and abuse

    my clients are ok with it..dont see why yours wont..
    many hosts allow this.. i dont think its a good idea..tho im over protective on my server.lol

    do you know how the client can set it up that users can upload to a directory within the public_html folder but not see the files after uploading?
    User would have different user/pass combo than main account.

    the main account holder would still have to be able to see the files through FTP though.

    Yeah thats exactly what I thought and what I had suggested .. I didnt know of a way to do it, and didnt think there was a way .. but thought id ask the question in case I was missing something blatantly obvious.

    Cheers
