Default FTP Accounts

An FTP account creates a folder on the public_html level of your site that allows external users that know the password to upload and download files from that location. Change your password if you think that your account is being used incorrectly.

Note: Please be aware that all users with the correct password will be able to add, edit, and delete files from the directory that you specify for the FTP account, and any directories within the stated directory.

To add an FTP account:

Click on the Ftp Manager button on the home page.

Click on the FTP Accounts link.

Click on the Add Account link.

Enter the name of the FTP account in the Login field and the password for the account in the Password field.

Enter the path to the directory to which this FTP account has access.

Warning: If you enter the top-level of the web site by entering a slash (/), all users with the correct password will be able to add, edit, and delete all files on your site. It is advisable to limit an FTP account to a smaller section of your web site.

Click on the Create button.

Anonymous FTP Accounts

Anonymous FTP access allows anyone to access your public_ftp folder. There are two options available:

Allow anonymous access to ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com - This allows to view, download, and delete files from your public_ftp folder.

Allow anonymous upload to ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com/incoming - This allows to view, upload, download, and delete files from your public_ftp/incoming folder.

Warning: Anonymous FTP allows anyone access to a restricted area of your site. It is generally safest to not enable Anonymous FTP. If you do enable it, you are responsible for the bandwidth and space used.

To set Anonymous FTP access:

Click on the Ftp Manager button on the home page.

Click on the Anonymous FTP Controls link.

Click on the Allow anonymous access to ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com tick box or the Allow anonymous upload to ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com/incoming tick box. You must click on both tick boxes to enable uploads.

Click on the Save Settings button.
