I am trying to create a FTP account in cPanel, and give it FTP access to multiple directories.

There are a lot of folders, but I only want to give the user access to two of them. I know how to give access to single folder or all of the folders, but I have no idea about how to do with multiple ones.

BTW, I do not know about Linux...

  • What server access do you have? Only cPanel?

    This isn't possible directly with cPanel, see here as to why. Try the answer and comments here.

  • @w3dk Thanks for replying! I only use cPanel, but I use Filezilla to upload and download files.

    @dan Thanks for your reply! And I do feel that it might be impossible to do it with cPanel, and I also view the link you shared, unfortunately, I do not know Linux, so it is kind of hard for me to try it... Anyway, thanks!
