ftp://user:password@domain.com

if your server requires the user@domain.com use

ftp://user+domain.com:password@domain.com
How do you do that? Do you do it with in the Control Panel?

Not really. But im guessing it isn't typed in right. Authentication failed usually means you didn't login with correct information.

Basically what I'm trying to do is allow certian clients to be able to upload files when needed through a specified ftp account I've set up for them. Often times files will be to large for them to send through their company e-mail, so I'd like to be able to have a dedicated ftp area where they can up load files through the web browser (as opposed to an ftp software).

Basically what I'm doing is creating an ftp account in the 'Control Panel' area with a Login, Password, Quota, & Directory. Am I going about this the right way?

P.s. I appreciate the help.   :happy:

It took a few tries, but I got a test ftp account to work. Here's how I did it:

In cPanel, use the FTP Manager to set up a new ftp user account. Make sure you understand the blurb at the bottom about the directory the new ftp user will have access to. By default, cPanel will create a directory within your public_html directory with a name that is the same as the account name you are creating.

In my test, I created an FTP account called "ftptest", using the default directory. cPanel created the directory "ftptest" within my public_html directory.

With IE, use the following URL to logon to the FTP acount that you created:

ftp://ftptest%40mydomain.com:password@ftp.mydomain.com

Note the "ftp.mydomain.com" after the @ sign, and the use of "%40" to replace the "@" sign in the user name.

Hope this helps.

Another option would be to use a php upload script to handle this rather than depending on FTP. You'd probably need/want to also use a custom php.ini file to get around the default maximum upload size set for PHP, but it might give a better experience to the users than needing to go through things via FTP...

just an idea...

Thanks, I just tried it. Problem was that I was able to get to the same page that Jeremy D's suggestion got me, but there was still no option for uploading. Am I missing something?  :-?

I'm sure that work great, but I don't know php.  :? Is there a ready script I could use that you know about?

a search of hotscripts.com or phpbuilder.com should turn up a few upload scripts... how complex it gets depends on how complex you would want it to be...

Here's a link to one simple file upload tutorial: http://www.tizag.com/phpT/fileupload.php

Works with my Firefox. 1.something.

Hi there,  :happy:

We recently bought " The basic hosting plan " and bought 3 extra domain-names.
Our first domain is asyanstudio.com with everything pre installed.  :thumb:
It has it's own ftp account running in a server of LP.

I was wonderin how we can do thesame thing with the other 3 domains.  :-?
So we actually wanted that each domain name has it's own ftp account diferent
from the 1st domain name and how to connect our 3 domain names into the ftp accounts.
We surely don't want to mix up files of each websites  :notme:.

Can you please show us step by step how to do this.   :cry:

This is our goal;  :help:

asyanstudio.com  - " all installed "     - online as www.asyanstudio.com
olbjaunimas.com  - own ftp account...??? - online as www.olbjaunimas.com
sagabal.com      - own ftp account...??? - online as www.sagabal.com
asyanrecordz.com - own ftp account...??? - online as www.asyanrecordz.com

Thanks in advance regarding this matter  :happy:

You need to create an FTP user for each addon domain that has access to only the root folder of each addon.


This should show you what you want to do:

If you have any questions please post back.

I hope this helps,
