Selective folder access

#1 Post by busby » 2013-04-25 01:33

I am trying to set up a user on my server but giving access to named folders only, I seem to remember doing this using aliases, but can't work out for the life of me how I got it working.

I have a structure like this:

c:\folder\folder a\part 1\
c:\folder\folder b\part 1\
c:\folder\folder c\part 1\
c:\folder\folder d\part 1\
c:\folder\folder e\part 1\

I want a user to be able to access 1st 3rd and 5th folders but not the others

Can anyone help please :roll:

First, the FTP account needs a directory (empty) assigned as Home. Then, you add the directories as resources and give each one an alias in the form /aliasname. They will appear as subdirectories. Use unique alias names even if the directories itself have equal ones.

Many thanks boco - I found out what the problem was with your help - I was using \ instead of /

Thanks again :D

If your post has cPanel, just use that. Otherwise why not use .htaccess
