Access via FTP to Website on Server 2003
Posted on 2007-04-04
I have configured Windows Server 2003 to be a web server. I have also created a website on that server that is now visible on the web. Now, what i want to do, is to be able to access this website using FTP, so i can edit the site in Dreamweaver or FrontPage or CuteFTP or any FTP-based program that gives me remote access. As a start, I am able to log on using my Administrator username and password, but i can't see or edit any files. I also want to instead be able to log on with DIFFERENT credentials than my Administrator account, say with the username of "ftpuser" instead.
I've read a ton of "Setting Up User Accounts for FTP" articles here, but none of them seem to apply to my present situation. All i want to do is to be able to create a usename and password and then use that username and password to upload/download my files to/from my website and to view the ones that are there.
Can someone take me through this step-by-step? - Thanks in advance!
