FTP

Hi,

Is it possible to give ftp access to another person only to a sub directory off my site i.e. htdocs\domainname\

Thanks

Dear Customer,

Unfortunately this isn't possible. You can however restrict FTP traffic by username by using an .htaccess file.

Mike

It means that it will prompt for a password when the user types in the URL, this will be needed to access any content in that directory.

No, it would just restrict web access to that directory. There's currently no way to implement the solution you require, I'm afraid.

RE: FTP

So the only way to do it is to give them my username and password so allowing them full access rather than just full control of the directory they need.

Or do all the leg work myself.

RE: FTP

Hi again,

You're totally correct, I'm afraid. I'd recommend doing the legwork yourself as giving your password out is a Bad Thing.

Why not get them to sign up for a Lite / Connect Lite and use MyReferrals? Wink

Mike

RE: FTP

If they signed up for a free account would it be possible to give them permission to the directory?

I know I can't do that from my end but maybe you could?

Hi there,

Everything at this end is UNIX-based so the permissions are too restrictive to allow such a plan, unfortunately.

Mike
