I want to give public FTP access to a dedicated directory in my account. How can i do it?
Anonymous FTP can fulfill your requirements.
This feature allows you to give public FTP access to a dedicated directory in your account. A special directory is created in your root, and its content can be viewed and downloaded, but not uploaded.
Anonymous FTP becomes available only after you create a Virtual FTP server. To configure Anonymous FTP, do the following:
- Skip this step if you are already using a dedicated IP.
Select FTP in FTP/User Account menu.
- If you have several domains, choose the one to enable virtual FTP for. On the page that appears, switch to dedicated IP. Click here to read about the difference between shared and dedicated IPs.
- Skip this step if you have already enabled Virtual FTP.
Select FTP in FTP/User Account menu. Enable FTP for this domain:
4.On your control panel home page, select FTP in FTP/User Account menu. Enable Anonymous FTP for this domain
Anonymous FTP Upload Facilities provides this
If you want to allow anonymous FTP users to upload files, enable Anonymous FTP Upload Facilities by doing the following:
- Enable Anonymous FTP.
- At the bottom of the FTP vhost page you will find a new option to enable anonymous FTP upload facilities:
Turn it on. This will create a dedicated directory inside the Anonymous FTP directory.
The Uploads (Windows based plans) / Incoming (Unix based plans) directory have only ‘upload’ permissions, so it will allow neither downloading nor viewing its content.
