Hello,

Is it possible to allow random users to upload files to a folder on my server? I want to make a "Queue" folder where my website columnists can upload their editorials. From there, I can spell-check them and move them to the destination folder for publishing.

Is this possible? Can I make a separate account on the CPanel for just the columnists to upload their work? Please reply. Thanks..

There is no clean way to make a directory available to a group of users to upload to, without giving them all the same login details. You might do better to handle this sort of thing thru your website software. For example Wordpress has options similar to what you're asking about I believe.

Even if you created a second cPanel account in order to isolate one account from the other, you've still got the issue of users sharing the login and all users with those login details being able to view, remove, edit everything else located there.
