    how would i go about setting up an account with multiple ftp accounts? for instance, i know when i set up a site it automatically sets up a FTP account for the site, but what it the client wants 2 additional ftp accounts to use for file storage and transfers (whose home folders are outside the webroot)? where do i go in plesk to set that up?

    Setup 2 new web users under the domain. This creates a folder in /web_uses/username that only they have access to via ftp.

    it looks like creating a webuser creates an ftp account whose home folder is inside the webroot. so anything that the user uploads can be access via a web browser by going to www.mydomain.com/theuser.

    i have clients who would like their ftp folder to be outside the webroot (i.e: not accessible via http, only via ftp) how would i do that?

    In the domain CP, create a private folder.

    it seems like it woudl be simpler if there was a way to create the users folder outside the webroot but i guess that would work.
