    Hey Ya'll -

    I've created a "web user" in Plesk - but I only want them to be able to connect via the ~/webuser URL, or via FTP to download, but not upload.

    Obviously, they can't upload via the web url, but they can if they connect w/ the web user ID and password via FTP.

    I'm familiar with the "shell" via SSH - can someone please tell me how to change permissions of this "webuser" ID so that they can download only, but not upload via FTP?

    You could chmod their home directory with "u-w" to remove write privileges, essentially making the folder read-only for the user.
