    Hi,

    I have a Godaddy VPS with cPanel & WHM, the latest version.

    I had make a new FTP user account by cPanel, then discovered it haven't "READ ONLY" permission.

    Do cPanel can do this right now on the latest version? If so how to? Better with a WiKi or document step detail.

    Thank you.

    I have been looking for the same thing. I managed to get the FTP user account to be read only by:

    Login as root:
    Set permissions for FTP user folder to: 500
    Set permissions for files in said folder to: 400
    Make sure files are owned by Cpanel user: chown cpaneluser:cpaneluser
