    I need to upload to a remote server by FTP some files to be stored in that server (backup).

    But, i need to have shure that the server owner can do NOTHING with the files, i mean he cant even open them.

    Like in windows zip with password a file.

    Can anyone tell me how can i do this on a linux box with cpanel/whm?

    Tks

    chown root filename
    chmod 000 filename

    that should make it so the user can not access the file at all.

    _edit_

    when you say 'server owner' who are you refering to? if it is the server admin, then you can encrypt the file somehow (dont ask me how because i have never had to do it).

    _/edit_
