I have multiple developers working on my cPanel account simultaneously. I want to assign them individual directories to work. I would need to be able to secure other directories from the developers not working on it.

I want the website user to be able to access the pages via their web browsers and not be asked credentials.

Do the developers have to use cPanel? Can they just use FTP to get at their directories? –  paulmorriss Dec 6 '11 at 9:00
    
ya they can use that. But i was thinking if there can be a way to do that in cpanel also. –  Jigar Tank Dec 6 '11 at 9:14

I don't see why any developer would want to use cpanel over shell/sftp. It's easier to just create a separate shell/sftp account for each dev and limit them to their own directory. If you can create separate cpanel users, that would also work, but unless you have a webhosting reseller account, I don't think that's likely. –  Lèse majesté Dec 6 '11 at 9:37

cPanel is not meant for this purpose.
