    I went to the FTP Accounts page and I tried to create an anonymous account but I couldn't. This is the info that appear on the page, but I cannot see any "Setup Anonymous FTP Access in the FTP Manager".

    There is an Anonymous ftp page which says this



    I can't be so difficult!:confused:

    Hello :)

    You will not need to create an FTP account in order to enable Anonymous FTP. Instead, you can browse to the following option within the cPanel of the account:

    "cPanel -- Files -- Anonymous FTP"

    This page defines how anonymous users interact with your FTP server. Using the checkboxes, anonymous users can be denied or allowed access to your FTP server for downloading or uploading content. The full details for this option are explained at:

    Anonymous FTP

    Thank you.

    If you are using a browser, which browser are you using for accessing that url? Also, you must use anonymous@alvaroalcaide.com as the username for the anonymous account unless the account has a dedicated IP (dedicated IP accounts should just be able to use anonymous).

    When I use anonymous@alvaroalcaide.com as the username and anonymous as the password, I am able to load the page just fine in Firefox as an anonymous user. I've attached a screen print of what I am seeing.
