    URGENT: Can I create another FTP account that accesses &quo

    When I create a new account using WebHost Manger, it automatically creates an FTP account using the accounts CPANEL username/password at the domain's root.

    Can I create a 2nd FTP account with the same directory root? (but a different username/password) with CPANEL? I can't for the life of me figure out how...

    You can, I don't recommend it at all though because you will run into problems with file permissions.

    If you still would like to do it, simply create another ftp account and then edit the file /etc/proftpd/username and change the path next to the new user to /home/username/public_html
