ResolutionAnonymous FTP users can't enter your root directory. They can enter only the directory you dedicated for anonymous ftp users.
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:
- 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.
(Read more about 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:
and agree with the charges.
- On your control panel home page, select FTP in FTP/User Account menu. Enable Anonymous FTP for this domain:
- Agree with the charges if any.
Anonymous FTP Upload Facilities
If you want to allow anonymous FTP users to upload files, enable Anonymous FTP Upload Facilities by doing the following:
- Enable Anonymous FTP (read above).
- 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.
