Hello,
I am not sure if there is an easy way to update the website inside my IE or FF browser.
There is someone who is going to update the website that has no experiance will ftp.
I would like a separate account set up, so the person who is updating does not have access to all the settings and e-mail accounts.

Anyone can help? I am good with computers, so I could do set up somthing... any suggestions?
Thanks!

You can setup a new FTP account from the cPanel and provide that account with password to it. The new FTP account that you will be setup should be used as [email protected] with its password. In IE, the FTP can be used as:

ftp://[email protected]

It will prompt for username/password, in the username filed, you have to supply the complete username i.e [email protected] and the password and it will allow you to login via FTP and upload/download files.

FTP support in IE is shaky at best. Not terribly many people have success using IE.

Personally, if you desire to use FTP - download an actual FTP client rather than relying on your web browser which provides the bare minimum to use FTP.

If you don't want to deal with the hassle of learning how to use FTP, I would recommend you use File Manager in your cPanel interface or set up a web disk (if your hosting provider has upgraded to cPanel 11).

Set them up with www.snippetmaster.com

You can configure it so that they are limited to only being able to edit certain files, or even only certain "editable regions" (Snippets) withing the files.
