Creating an FTP account through Plesk

Last Modified: 2013-11-30
I am logging on to Plesk control panel and I cannot seem to find a way to create an FTP account for a specific folder.  I would be regretfull if you experts could help me with this.

Thank you in advance.

FTP setup is done through the domain configuration section.  When you add a domain, or edit a domain after creation, the setup dialog asks for an ftp user and password.  After setup, you can define additional web users for the ftp.  I  believe Plesk is rather limited in what in can do for aliased or remote directories...you may need another solution to include directories outside of Plesk's vhost area.


I am going to follow your steps and get back to you.  Thank you for now.
