    Hello and good morning all,

    I've a client who needs to create a SFTP user to upload certain files (csv files) everyday to a location outside the html folder on his domain.

    I already created the account and I'm able to connect with regular FTP but I just can't connect trying SFTP.

    Can someone please help me or pointing me on how can I do this?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi cPanelMichael,

    I need to setup a virtual account (not my main account) to work with SFTP as I need to give a certain user access to a folder (just a folder) outside my html where they can upload 5 files a day (csv files).

    So, how can I make this possible? and of course they want to use SFTP to do this. So what's the best way to do this?

    Thanks for your advice on this matter,

    Jesus

    Hello,

    There's no support for virtual SFTP users in cPanel, but feel free to vote and add feedback to the existing feature request at:

    SFTP access for virtual FTP users

    Thank you.
