FTP Access to a single directory

    Is there any way to set up FTP access to one directory through Plesk?

    I have a client who needs to give a single employee access to a single folder to upload large files - 4MB-800MB in size. They don't want to give their employees access to the site's base directory.

    We could set up a Web User account, but they need to put the files in a specific place in the account because the files need to be there for an application. Could I maybe set up a symbolic link to the actual folder?

    What other solutions are there?

    Anyone ever experience the same issue? Is there any way to set up a separate FTP access for a single folder?

    Run the following:

    adduser ftpuser
    passwd ftpuser

    Then add this to /etc/proftpd.conf

    <Directory /home/ftpuser/*>
            UserOwner                               ftpuser
            GroupOwner                              ftpuser
            AllowOverwrite                          on
    No restart is necessary

    Hey - thanks for the help, but it didn't work for me. Actually, it allowed access, but when I tested it, it let me into every file on the system. Obviously that wouldn't do. I'm running Debian 3.1 Sarge, and I haven't had anything like that happen before, but obviously that's bad.

    I did follow these instructions , and it worked out first try. Thanks for your help, though.
